CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

By the time "Smoke" distills the album's journey from fierce to vulnerable and back again, Lithium Zion reveals Deaf Wish are now as articulate as they are furious -- a subtle but vital change that makes this their finest work yet.

Loud and Quiet

Few groups have successfully pulled off a convincing Sonic Youth impression. But Melbourne’s Deaf Wish have a decent go at channelling their alt-rock-radio middle period on their fifth release – and not merely by aping the guitar style.

The new debut album by Deaf Wish is a solid punky rock album. I like a lot of the general vibe of this album but I feel like I’ve heard the same thing be done better before namely with acts like TFS who really pushed a boundary.

Deaf Wish come into their own more than ever and offer up their sleekest and most dangerous sounding tracks to date. You can argue that half of the sounds on this album they’ve ripped from the playbooks of Sonic Youth and Bauhaus. But one thing you can’t dispute is just how great they make it sound. And between that, very updated production, grimy instrumentals and some very moody performances, this is a really great Post-Punk album.
