CRITIC REVIEWS

91
Beats Per Minute

Burst Apart is much more complex than its predecessor, both emotionally and musically.

91
Pretty Much Amazing
90
Drowned in Sound

Burst Apart deserves all the plaudits that can be thrown at it; albums are rarely as unashamedly, gut-wrenchingly, genuinely emotional as this.

82
Pitchfork

It's all the more affecting for how it allows you to pick your own stumbling, lonely path.

80
PopMatters

Not only does Burst Apart rise to the occasion of following up an instant classic, it might even best Hospice in more ways than one.

70
Tiny Mix Tapes

Burst Apart shows The Antlers to be on sure footing, playing to their strengths, but confident enough in their own instincts to depart from some of the qualities that made them the indie rock wunderkinds of 2009.

60
No Ripcord

Burst Apart is a passable follow-up to an incredible record, but that’s all it is. Passable.
