CRITIC REVIEWS

78
Paste

Worship is defiantly abrasive, trafficking in squealing, drill-to-the-brainpan noise-rock that owes more to the Mary Chain’s explosive, aggressive live posture than to their more stylized recorded material.

The Line of Best Fit
70
musicOMH

Despite concessions to accessibility, this is at times an arduous listen for the unprepared. 

70
Consequence of Sound

Worship, like Exploding Heart before it, is a grower, music that only truly reveals itself with time, attention, and lots of repeated listens.

69
Beats Per Minute

More often than not, Worship sounds more like an emulation than it does the real deal.

67
A.V. Club

There’s not enough conviction or charisma on the surface of Worship’s dulled sandpaper to break the skin, let alone get under it.

65
Pitchfork

Hopefully, Worship will prove to be a transitory album, because its best songs feel like the work of another band entirely

60
Drowned in Sound

Despite the aggression in their music, it's not uncommon for APTBS to tone things down a few tracks into an album, but watch out for the lull in this one.

60
PopMatters

There’s a diligent craftsmanship here and just enough attitude to carry the album all the way to the finish line.

50
Under The Radar

While Worship occasionally soars on its own beautiful anonymity, it misses the bar set by a line of charismatic frontmen who exposed themselves through compelling narratives.
