Feb 1, 2021Somehow, there’s an odd clarity to be found amongst all the noise, distortion and decay. The Body might have looked to their past in finding the sound for this album, but in creating this slab of grief and anger, they’ve managed to be uncannily prescient. This is probably one of the most relevant and affecting albums of 2021.
Jan 27, 2021There may be an idea at the center of the record, but it’s overwhelmed by the sheer visceral quality of the songs. You listen and your guts shake. The whole room seems to shake. One is reminded of a clause the Body have quoted from Hrabal’s foreboding writing: “my whole room hurts.” If that’s akin to the affect the Body are seeking, they have succeeded.
Feb 3, 2021This music is so bluntly fatalistic—in idea and execution—that it feels life-affirming to experience, as cleansing as scalding water. The Body have embraced that sensation since finding it on their 2010 breakthrough, All the Waters of the Earth Turn to Blood. On I’ve Seen All I Need to See, it is mercilessly distilled and efficient, reminding us there’s no time to waste.
Feb 5, 2021The Body's latest exercise in amplified bleakness, a blend of muck and misery whose existence almost requires a term stronger than “doom” to succinctly and conveniently explain it. To call The Body’s music “doom” is tantamount to calling the rapture an unexplained and coincidental spike in lengthy vacations.
Jan 27, 2021Even though the Body are clearly trying different approaches and continually pushing their sound into new territory, I've Seen All I Need to See still somehow carries an air of familiarity. ... Nevertheless, by doing away with some of the more extravagant, theatrical elements of the Body's past albums, the release is undeniably some of their most direct and punishing work.
UncutJan 27, 2021This is pulverising cacophonic stuff but it's also considered and atmospheric. [Feb 2021, p.25]
