  1. 100
    A bravura statement from an artist still sounding fresh three decades into his career.

    A soundtrack that hits with the force of a well-timed punch and soothes like the ministrations of a doomed romantic poet. [No. 142, p.56]

    Gargoyle takes the electronic bedrock of its 2014 predecessor Phantom Radio and kicks it up a notch. [Jun 2017, p.109]
  4. 80
    A wealth of arresting images sprinkled throughout another excellent album.

    Gargoyle kicks massive ass; here are ten songs you won’t be able to hear enough. Just about essential.

    His irrepressible, grizzled vocal is the master key to the soul that is often kept hidden behind the pewter façade, and it’s the desire for more glimpses into it is what makes Gargoyle as affecting as it is.

    Gargoyle is missing the emotive, musical draw that makes Langegan the tear-jerking, blues-poet that he really is.
