  1. This is undoubtedly a stronger effort than Shadows Collide, and maybe that's due to [Frusciante's] ability to just let the music fly instead of attempting to overwork things.

    It's all very simple, organic and, best of all, easy on the ears. [Oct 2004, p.140]
  3. As another impressive portion of his potent '04 output, Will to Death's immediacy and quality should quiet the critics-- particularly those who pegged his early solo records as the work of a narcotics pain-train washout.
  4. Mojo

    Stirring but sombre stuff. [Aug 2004, p.86]
  5. There's almost nothing in the way of guitar heroics and it's far from groundbreaking, but fans of darkly personal skewed pop should enjoy Will to Death.
