CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Drowned in Sound

Echoing their 2000 release The Gap, the LP runs together with no pause to change over. Each sound is brought in carefully, as bricks and mortar to build up a fragile new fortress for us and the band to occupy.

AllMusic

1984 is memorable for its folky, Scout Finch-like recollections that mix the playful, unfortunate, and innocent.

The Line of Best Fit

1984 is a notable about-face even for a band predisposed to unpredictability.

The vocal's performance of the girl is so cringy while the production isn't as bad as the previous album. Overall, it's extremely diverse but all the tracks are a cheap version of planty bands.
Joan of Arc seems to be the band that people loves to hate (and I clearly see why).
