Apr 26, 2021Here, the sequencing is more dynamic and the lyrical settings are as intimate as they've ever been. ... Their body of work speaks for itself at this point: Manchester Orchestra is one of the greatest bands alive right now, and The Million Masks of God is yet another feather in their cap.
Apr 26, 2021With ‘The Million Masks Of God’, they’ve written something that feels similar to one – a record that traverses every corner of their sound, from beefy rock songs to string-assisted grandeur and acoustic bliss, further cementing their place as an under appreciated band to treasure.
Apr 30, 2021With its complex sonic textures, use of repetition, and few standout hooks, The Million Masks of God is Manchester Orchestra’s least accessible work, but it’s an achievement in its own way. It doesn’t have many stand-out singles but is best appreciated by repeated listens in its entirety as the narrator, as a stand-in for the band, confronts his spiritual and emotional pain without a clear resolution.
Apr 26, 2021When the band dabbles in more disruptive sounds that deviate from A Black Mile to the Surface, the effect is fresh and exciting. ... The remainder of the album, however, is composed mostly of midtempo songs that all similarly build to predictable climaxes.

I believe they are doing things on a different level. Opening track “Inaudible” the production and catchy vocals instantly drew me in, heavenly choir voices/harmonies. Other highlights: “Obstacle”,my favorite track on the album, we hear Andy hit some out of character high notes that surprised me, and were worth the effort. Hearing Hull branch out and try new things (as simple as they seem) was a huge pleasure to hear. “Angel of death” was also a favorite of mine. Point is I cannot say enough nice things about this album, I cannot stop jumping in the car and bringing up Spotify to listen through again. Excellent work.… Expand
