    Just when it seems it's an invitation to drift away, Kazuashita sags the attention, demands vigilance; a record of the world, rather than out of it. [Jul 2018, p.95]

    • Mojo
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Ultimately, the record triumphs via Rolling Blackouts; deep inhabitation of their music, ans the space of its creation. [Jul 2018, p.92]

    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score

    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A record out of time, and, in terms of quality, out of this world. [Jul 2018, p.91]
    • Mojo
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's all imbued with such unhinged energy and genre-skipping abandon that Warmduscher collectively concoct some weird pop voodoo, perhaps best heard on the swampy bastard blues of the title track. [Jul 2018, p.96]

    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score

    Muscular adaptations of Stephen Stills' How Far and Parliament's Get On Out Of The Rain stray into '70s Who territory, with stirring arrangements and hot Townshend licks, while his courageous tilt at Nick Cave piano ballad Into My Arms roils with heartache that can;t be faked. [Jun 2018, p.89]
