    Dark Crawler is the sound of Terror Danjah hitting artistic maturity.
  2. Nov 21, 2012
    The ingredients that make up Dark Crawler are a tasty mix, and Danjah could do worse than keep cooking with this recipe.
  3. Oct 1, 2012
    Amidst all the flying debris and heart-stopping drama you have the most cohesive and powerful single statement from Terror Danjah yet.
  4. Sep 25, 2012
    The Dark Crawler shows just how varied a grime album can actually be.
  5. Sep 25, 2012
    There is no concept, because sometimes an album just doesn't need to confuse itself with one, this is simply a collection of heavyweight dancefloor bangers and should be enjoyed as such.

    It might have taken a decade, but this feels like grime finally beginning to grasp its vast potential.

    Parts of Dark Crawler are thrilling. But it sounds less like a confident stride forward than a cautious toe dipped into an unpromising future, one eyeball trained wistfully on the past. [Nov 2012, p.66]
  8. 60
    Even when new ideas poke their way through, the knowledge in the back of your mind of how great a Terror Danjah album in 2012 could and should be sours the tight-lipped lack of fun on display here.

    The music is big but gentle, offered without tension or anger. When it is not big-- see the leaden sentiment of "You Make Me Feel" and "Delicately"-- it is laughably composed and calculating.
