CRITIC REVIEWS

85
The 405

Peaking Lights have succeeded in crafting a blissfully cohesive album, teeming with sounds that only bubble to the surface on subsequent listens.

80
Under The Radar

Lucifer seems like something destined for hoity-toity aloofness, but it stays grounded and approachable.

80
Consequence of Sound

It masterfully winds years of Coyes’ spacey song construction with the tenderness of fresh parenthood.

79
Pitchfork

Lucifer is just their third album, and yet it's unmistakably drenched in their specific brand of patience and calm. 

70
musicOMH

Any experiments with noise or abstraction have been further toned down, and even the group’s trademark dubby basslines seem subsumed within a softer mood. 

70
Drowned in Sound

Truth be told, even though I enjoy the record, I do find myself drifting off at times. 

50
FACT Magazine

Good music isn’t the same as important music, and a new baby isn’t as interesting as cool ideas.

50
PopMatters

Its goals do not make it a disappointing album, it is, rather, the fact that those goals are never reached.
