    The Bronx has turned rage and desperation into a perpetual state of being--and (IV) into a monument not just of survival, but also evolution.

    It all adds up to The Bronx's most accomplished record. [26 Jan 2013, p.54]

    With power chord hooks and a newfound innocence, this is a side of The Bronx you’ve yet to hear.
  4. It all adds up to a solid release that is suited better for the radio than it is among your hardcore collection.
  5. None of the band’s bolshy character is lost on Bronx IV, but they do find new places to go.

    This classic hard rock production touches every song on IV, and the first half of the record is composed of songs that seem tailored to fit the post-metal sensibilities of the record's sonic texturing.
  7. 60
    Unfortunately (and as is the case with their past three albums), the band’s bash-it-out approach loses some steam by the end of the record. But if you’re down for unrelenting rock ‘n roll fraught with the bitterness of adulthood, The Bronx is your band.
