    Here you're thrilled by how refreshingly streamlined these songs are from the off. [20 Jan 2018, p.50]

    Indeed, positivity and a spirit of adventure bring in textures ranging from ethereal Kate Bush-type piano pop to Madness stomp.

    This long-awaited second album isn’t just thrilling from start to finish: it might also be exactly what rock needs right now.

    For every radio-ready chorus, there’s a fascinating tangent, and plenty of pointers towards Marmozets being the most important rock band we have.

    Knowing What You Know feels like a journey, one that’s filled with mountainous climbs and treacherous lows, each to be consumed with reckless abandon, because that’s exactly what Marmozets are--a force to be reckoned with.

    Tracks like "Lost in Translation" and "Like a Battery" have a real old-school, balls-to-the-wall "rawk" sound which at times feels a bit simplistic, but is still a lot of fun. It sounds as if the band have outgrown the need to prove themselves with overt technicality and are happy to just enjoy rocking out.

    Marmozets are a band that thrive on angst. They deliver it through the raw nature of their sound, through their acute lyrics and pounding metalcore-slash-pop-punk. It can feel at times, though, of too much of an exhilarating ride, an endless roller coaster that doesn’t provide enough respite.

    Energy, vocals, instrumentation; this album has it all. It's got loud and in-your-face moments, namely Meant To Be, Major System Error, softerEnergy, vocals, instrumentation; this album has it all. It's got loud and in-your-face moments, namely Meant To Be, Major System Error, softer moments like Me & You and Run With The Rhythm and songs that blend both aspects like Habits. Overall, a decent effort with high replay factor Expand
