    It is arguable that Ones And Sixes is their most fully integrated album to date--a richly satisfying and coherent work drawing together many of the different strands of their career so far.

    Ones and Sixes is an ear-pricking listen, particularly on headphones.

    Low have made one of the most impressive albums of their career and it still feels like their best work is ahead of them rather than stuck back in the past. [Oct 2015, p.92]

    With Ones and Sixes they’ve pulled together many of their disparate sides in a masterful survey of what makes them one of the great rock bands of their era.

    Its slight downfall is a lack of lyrical dexterity, recycling phrases as a crutch, perhaps. The overriding feeling, however, is that this record indicates no end to the creativity of a commercially undervalued act whose longevity was never prophesised.

    Low have been indie rock's most economical songwriters for 20 years and running, but their 11th LP takes a bold step toward pop.

    One And Sixes brings a welcome edge... Unusually for Low, the lyrics are where One And Sixes falls down, frequently dealing less in acutely felt emotions than in questions and negotiations. [Sep 2015, p.47]

    Great bounce back from an average effort(Invisible Way). This album is as good as Drums and Guns, my 2nd favorite Low album. I don't get theGreat bounce back from an average effort(Invisible Way). This album is as good as Drums and Guns, my 2nd favorite Low album. I don't get the comments I've seen about this being a more accessible album than what they've done previously. Maybe a couple tracks are somewhat like that. There's hardly a wasted second on this album. It's very consistent, nearly every note is enjoyable. Expand
