Oct 21, 2015This album is a triumph, and with it, Protomartyr has pulled off the unlikely feat of making the rock record of the year, twice in a row.
Oct 8, 2015While the individual songs have peaks and purpose, the album winds up functioning on the same level.
Oct 7, 2015If Right was about the evil that men do, Intellect goes one bigger and asks why they do it. The answer, again and again, is rooted in hurt, pain, neglect, and disappointment. Intellect draws its energy from the panic of mortality.
Oct 7, 2015Protomartyr is from Detroit, and there’s a dour, industrial affect to this record-- the band’s best, though like the others it can sometimes feel like one long song--which seems to confirm everything you think you know about that city.... But Mr. Casey’s excellent lyrics go bigger and more abstract.
Oct 8, 2015If these guys don't have the loftiest ambitions ever, it needn't matter when The Agent Intellect makes post-punk feel like purest rock'n'roll.
Oct 7, 2015The Agent Intellect is a multi-layered, emotive powerhouse of a record.

Despite aProtomartyr is back with another energetic foray into post-punk darkness, and The Agent Intellect is perhaps their best effort yet. Despite a few tracks falling flat for me, the majority of the record is memorable, straightforward ramblings of an insane man. I would recommend this record to any fan of the genre. In terms of 2015, probably the second best post-punk album (behind Ought). Give this a listen.… Expand
