CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Drowned in Sound

On this second LP of theirs everything seems larger, their feral energy placed onto a spacious canvas that allows considerable breathing space.

80
Consequence of Sound

Cymbals Eat Guitars have succeeded in creating one of the year’s most surprisingly transcendental sophomore albums.

80
No Ripcord

Lenses Alien is a thick, abundantly ornate listen that overawes as much as it enthralls.

80
Beats Per Minute

This is a really banging collection by a poet honing his craft, still experimenting and learning and having fun.

80
Pitchfork

Lenses Alien certainly isn't intended to be strip-mined for singles, it's meant to be experienced on a remarkably micro level.

Parts & Labor - Constant Future

Paul Simon - So Beautiful or So What
