    This record is nothing short of an absolute masterpiece. It handles its themes like a charm without even uttering a word (except for the intro then). Expect to be blown away.

    This is an ambitious, cohesive effort from the Sheffield band, and its complex and spacious sound is both beautifully engaging and highly rewarding.

    The pomp they derive from taking dour post-rock to a rave--notably here in Prisms--is satisfying. [Nov 2013, p.101]
