Oct 23, 2014The result is what separates indie music from the contemporary mainstream: an actual album, a 40-minute body of work with a sense of cohesiveness that isn’t designed to be broken down into Spotify playlists or end-of-year 'best of 2014' mixtapes.
Oct 23, 2014Although by no means an instant classic, Nobody Wants to Be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave shows an integrity to The Twilight Sad which cements their position as one of the more creatively important bands operating today.
Oct 23, 2014They sound as powerful as ever, and their penchant for weaving subtle folk melodies amongst their noise is still pretty special.
Oct 23, 2014It’s stripped back and assured in its simplicity, yet operatic and beautifully composed. Oh, and it really is truly miserable.
Oct 27, 2014There’s no use putting The Twilight Sad out of their misery if they continue to deliver such a delightfully morose tapestry of color and vitality.

Oct 27, 2014The lack of palplable passion on Nobody Wants to Be Here is, once again, somewhat disappointing and even more surprising.

The songwriting is reduced and thus gives the musicFrom track one to track ten, this album is nothing less than an astonishing achievement. The songwriting is reduced and thus gives the music itself enough space to expand from some catchy indie-riffs into the more gloomy, melancholy depths of the album´s second part. This may be the real achievement that makes this fourth output of The Twilight Sad so outstanding; the songs flow into each other, forming not just a compilation of good stand-alone songs but a constant & coherent piece of music where everything is exactly where it needs to be. The songs manage to merge together and create this beauty of an LP. There´s definitely only a small amount of albums released in the last few years that achieve to do the same.… Expand

Just hearing that thick Scottish accent and those shoegazing and melancholic guitar and drums transport me to different dimensions and states of being. Clearly underrated, this album serves as one of the greatest of the year, by far...… Expand

It's one of those rare albumsNo One Wants To Be Here and No One Wants To Leave immediately takes it's place as The Twilight Sad's best LP. It's one of those rare albums where everything has come together at the same time and in just the right way. The record feels like a seminal genre offering, an LP that people might still be whispering about a few years down the line. We'll see if that comes to pass but NOWTBHANOWTL is certainly a frontrunner for best indie album of the year.… Expand

It's classic gloomy indie rock that with serious melodies. The sound they have captured is really dark but also huge. This band always remind me of The Cure's "Pornography" album in terms of their ability to create and capture gloom using wonderful melodies. A feeling of despair but also a sense of hope from the music. Opener, "There's a Girl in the Corner" is a modern classic, made all the more so by Robert Smith's cover of it. The influencer acknowledging the follower with the ultimate compliment. At 10 tracks/45 minutes, it never outstays its welcome. It doesn't change the world but "No one want to be here and no one wants to leave" is as good a post punk album as you'll hear from the 2010's.… Expand
