CRITIC REVIEWS

Unsound is the sound of a band that takes the same painstaking approach as they did three decades ago.

80
musicOMH

Unsound is a smile-inducing slab of post-punk awesome.

80
Consequence of Sound

By engaging their simultaneous young-old dynamic, the band continually analyzes itself and its process.

77
Pitchfork

Even when they stretch, their musical personality is so strong that they end up further confirming their consistency.

70
Drowned in Sound

Mission of Burma have successfully walked that fine line between being consistent and running out of ideas. 

70
No Ripcord

It’s easy to ignore what’s going on in the background of these tracks and get caught up in the strong riffs, but the songs will blur together if you do.

67
A.V. Club

Where the previous comeback albums have roared, Unsound feels dull, uneven, and a little bored. 

65
The 405

Everything works well together, even when the songs are eschewing structure in favour of more exploratory ideas.

60
PopMatters

It too often feels like it is looking in the rear view mirror and previous glories
