FACT Magazine

Almost overwhelming in places, and certainly distinct, Light Asylum is, quite simply, a brilliant album from musicians who deserves immense respect.

Under The Radar

Deep, guttural, often gruff, she's got a fierce, aggressive range that bends to fit the record's widely varying styles

61
Pitchfork

Part of what makes listening to Light Asylum so frustrating is a nagging want to see her talent mobilized to the fullest, to roll up your sleeves and try to make a Light Asylum in your own image.

60
Consequence of Sound

Light Asylum is intimidating, but the band’s goth pop comes with an undeniable groove that’s still easy to enjoy.

60
No Ripcord

Light Asylum works best if approached as a work of fantastic campness
