    With tensions at its core, Pre Language fuses white light with the darkness of anxiety. [Mar 2012, p.102]

    Pre Language is some of Disappears' most confident, most accessible music yet.

    Disappears present an album that sounds pretty confident in its pursuit of forward motion yet distractingly familiar. [Mar 2012, p.65]

    The malevolence and needling insistency of Gang Of four and Fugazi are this record's core. [Apr 2012, p.77]

    It might not rocket them out of their obscurity but Disappears have created a record that can appease fans happy with how they sounded anyway and those that are searching for something new.

    This album feels more like a series of genre exercises, a place in which they occasionally work up a palpable tension, but never enough to make this more than an adequate diversion from the resources they're obviously sourcing.
