Oct 12, 2015A remarkable album, one that only grows more awesome with each listen.
Oct 12, 2015Tight when they need to be but loose enough to explore the cosmos, Deerhunter sounds reinvigorated by the new attitude.
Oct 12, 2015If there isn't a Deerhunter sound, there's a Deerhunter perspective that runs through their work, best summed up in "All the Same"—"take your handicaps/ Channel them and feed them back/ Until they become your strengths." The weird era continues.
Oct 8, 2015Fading Frontier seems to be Deerhunter’s most crystal-clear record to date. Nine times out of 10, it’s precisely this clarity that allows their miasma of messages to hit home the hardest.
Oct 14, 2015The music is calmer, but his flare hasn't left with his anger, thus solidifying the album into the band's pristine legacy.
Oct 16, 2015Nevertheless, this unsettled eclecticism notwithstanding, Fading Frontier does in fact sport some of Deerhunter’s most conventional and poppy material.
Q MagazineOct 8, 2015The follow-up mostly reverts to the synth-oriented dream-poppiness of 2010's Halcyon Digest. [Nov 21015, p.107]

However, I think it is just as good as their last two albums. It is cohesive, in that each song segues very nicely into the next. The songs are poignant, fraught with meaning, and emotionally charged. The production value is excellent; each song is well crafted and packed with instrumentation and effects. Deerhunter have released 3 superb albums in the last 5 years - not many other bands working today can make that claim.… Expand
May 19, 2016"Faded Frontier" sees Deerhunter return to form after 2013's sometimes patchy "Monomania". Coming in around the half hour mark in running"Faded Frontier" sees Deerhunter return to form after 2013's sometimes patchy "Monomania". Coming in around the half hour mark in running time, it's a brief yet focused record that drips with melodies that are both warm and incisive at the same time. The first half of the album is a quarter hour of the most pure and wonderful indie pop. The second half of the album sees the band flex their experimental muscles a tad further but without ever over indulging. The art of quality songwriting is at the centre of the album, something that is approached with less and less sincerity in the era of short attention spans and all you can eat streamed ear candy. Excellent.… Expand

Bradford Cox shows not only his view of the current world to the listener, he also drags himself through the electronic and rocking sounds from the album. The different musical styles included both the strength(Take Care) and weakness(Leather and Wood) from the album. The stability in the vocals and the balanced interplay carries Fading Frontier miles away from Monomania and can compete with the times of Halcyon Digest. With this the future of the band can be opened up for a new batch of experimental ways. 7,3/10
