    An album that's just as vital as it is accomplished.

    A Place To Bury Strangers succeeds in one aspect: It produces music so hammering and explosively airy that it crumbles the very walls used to create such an echoed and amplified sound. It just fails to recognize that in doing so for almost 45-minutes straight, we begin to feel like we're getting buried alive under the rubble.
  3. Worship [is] an occasionally solid, but ultimately forgettable affair.

    What is surprising is just how chief songwriter Oliver Ackermann shapes their face-melting shoegaze into something altogether more sophisticated. [Aug 2012, p.94]

    The highlights of their third album appear to have been forged rather than recorded. [Aug 2012, p.69]

    APTBS mask a lack of ideas or something to say by inventing louder volumes than everyone else.
