CRITIC REVIEWS

100
MUSICOMH

It's certainly among his most concentrated and well crafted works - the best since Harmony In Ultraviolet and arguably the most successful of them all.

90
NO RIPCORD

The record is awash with the feeling of isolation and teaming with crushing amplified annihilation.

86
PITCHFORK

The notion of music as a cheapened, battered object, touches nearly every aspect of Ravedeath, 1972, a dark and often claustrophobic record that is arguably Hecker's finest work to date.

70
POPMATTERS

Ravedeath, 1972 is so amorphous and ungraspable this way that it ranks as Hecker’s most disorienting record, and therefore, perhaps, his scariest.
