CRITIC REVIEWS

95
The 405

It would be hard to see this album not making any end-of-year lists, partly down to the fact that this is one of the most beautiful albums to come out of 2012 so far, and also partly down to the fact that this is Efterklang's landmark album.

Drowned in Sound

Piramida is undoubtedly the band’s most immediate work to date and it might be strange to be writing it, but nearly each and every track would work standing on its own.

80
FACT Magazine

Piramida is a noble, self-possessed creation; a masterclass in considered arrangement. 

80
musicOMH

This is the album where Efterklang reconcile their imaginative orchestration with a noticeable step up in lyrical meaning and thought. 

57
Pitchfork

This shift results in music that on its surface feels ambitious and sophisticated but which manages never to take any real chances.

50
NME

Destined for the ‘obscure, kinda interesting’ slot come end-of-year list time. 

50
Consequence of Sound

The thorough arrangements on Piramida continue to be the reason to come to an Efterklang disc, but they are rarely matched with equally strong pop components.
