Beats Per Minute

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

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.

Pitchfork

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

After the emotionally overwhelming 'Hospice,' The Antlers relax a bit for a slightly dreamier album. There's no heartbreaking concept at all here. It's just a straightforward album with songs that feel a lot more relatable than ones off of 'Hospice.' The basic nature of this album may disappoint some listeners, but I feel that it's a likeable follow up.

Favourite tracks: I Don't Want Love, No Widows, Every Night My Teeth Are Falling Out
