Such is the impressive scope, sound, and construction of this album, it’d take someone with genuine cloth ears and malfunctioning cloth ears at that, to find something to dislike about Thin Black Duke.

Tiny Mix Tapes

The Thin Black Duke is a concentrated work of beauty and malevolence that will go toe-to-toe with any other rock record released this year, and likely beyond.

Drowned in Sound

Oxbow's seventh full-length is an incredible, cinematic experience which is at once rewarding and terrifying.

The Line of Best Fit

Thin Black Duke isn’t their finest album – for my money, that’d have to be 1995’s Steve Albini-produced Let Me Be A Woman – but it’s still one of the most thrilling, galvanising records I’ve heard in recent months.

Pitchfork

It may not be their definitive show of force, but it’s a dazzling spectacle nonetheless.

Well worth the almost decade-long weight. Not as brutal as their past releases, but just as creepy. The newer, sparse sounds speak for themselves. They've taken the time to whittle away the excess of the songs to get to the raw elements.
