The collection of 11 tracks are both majestic and effortless.

72
Pitchfork

Grace is fleshier than its predecessors, with horns, needlework guitar, and Jenner's brash voice filling the negative space the band used to gift to the dance floor.

60
Drowned in Sound

It’s hard to escape the feeling that this is a band struggling to define themselves in a musical context that no longer needs them.

50
Consequence of Sound

The songs deliver some memorable hooks and grooves but still feel oddly defanged.

38
Beats Per Minute

In The Grace Of Your Love is a painful experiment in spaghetti tossing.

30
PopMatters

In the Grace of Your Love doesn’t push the band beyond its old disco-lite formulas, nor does it disarm you and ask for your hand on the dance floor.

More solid as an indie rock album than a dance-y experimental one. Some of the songs drag on a bit too long, but the ideas are good.

Great find. As all punk music, it's solid, no matter how good or how bad.

Despite the sense of maturity, they haven't found the balance between the past and the present, between life and loss, between inspiration and exhaustion.
