CRITIC REVIEWS

A.V. Club

With Lost Songs, it’s rekindled the raw, unflinching spirit that, a decade ago, placed the group among rock’s elite.

80
Drowned in Sound

It's a frenetic, committed album oozing passion at every turn, and the world would be poorer without it.

80
Pitchfork

Lost Songs in turn reminds us that Trail of Dead excel at more than just apocalyptic, drum-set-toppling, thrash-and-burn.

80
Consequence of Sound

The ragged intensity results in an urgency not heard since their universally accepted masterpiece, 2002's Source Tags & Codes

78
Paste

If for nothing else than the fact that they serve as fist-pumping anthems, Lost Songs is a success.

50
Under The Radar

The directionless nature of the songs leaves them feeling half-formed, perhaps better refined or even left on the cutting room floor than making their way to a full album.

With Lost Songs, Trail Of Dead certainly have their hearts in the right place; sadly, though, that’s the best one can really say about this album.

40
PopMatters

When it comes down to it, these tracks really aren’t that bad, but it’s hard not to have the echoes of savvier songwriting in your head when listening to a group like Trail of Dead
