CRITIC REVIEWS

85
The 405

They've found themselves in a perfect storm of miserablist pop music that would make Trent Reznor proud.

83
A.V. Club

No One Can Ever Know works because The Twilight Sad knows exactly what old bits to jettison and new ones to embrace without tinkering with its cold, black heart.

80
musicOMH

No One Can Ever Know ramps up the darkness to unprecedented levels while aligning the groups gloomy rock to new electronic sounds.

80
Drowned in Sound

No One Can Ever Know’s skill is in wielding bleak nostalgia with subtlety; boyish confusion and fear is tempered with the vague uplift of a reassuringly avuncular narrator.

80
No Ripcord

There are no compromises to be reached, and that’s what makes No One Can Ever Know such an authoritative listen.

76
Beats Per Minute

It’s pretty neat to have a band like The Twilight Sad that are quite comfortable with shedding their skin every so often, especially when that shedding feels natural.

74
Pitchfork

No One Can Ever Know is kind of a failure as a total sonic rebranding, but it's a strong transition for the band into something a little more form-fitting while carrying over their commitment to morose atmosphere

70
Consequence of Sound

For a young band with only three records under its belt, the exactitude and evolution that The Twilight Sad shows on No One is impressive.

70
PopMatters

If No One Can Ever Know turns out to be a transitional record, it should be exciting to see what’s on the other side.

40
Under The Radar

It's buzzy, overcrowded, liquid-sheen indie rock that sounds professional in the worst way possible
