CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Loud and Quiet

Gurnsey’s focus on capturing the moments of a night out gives ‘Physical’ a sense of menace and excitement, and his softer touch diminishes nothing.

80
The Skinny

Physical boasts one hell of a range of tracks, some suited for dancing but all suited to telling Gurnsey's favourite story.

80
God Is in the TV

Physical is a wild, pulsating listen that works on so many levels inside the club and outside looking in.

The Line of Best Fit

While it’s not true that this is vastly different from what he does with Factory Floor, there’s still plenty here for fans of that band ... to dip into with enthusiasm.

musicOMH

At its best Physical develops on his work with Factory Floor to create a distinctive style of his own, an unsettling retro take on house music that yields many fantastic results across the record.

70
Drowned in Sound

While Gurnsey still keeps his tunes all tight and trim like the most on-point DJ, Physical sketches out enough of the night life to convince us that anything could still happen.

60
The Observer

Not everything here is riveting: Gurnsey’s narrative arc is a little underdeveloped. Unlike your average dour beatmonger, however, Gurnsey has bags full of hooks.

There's a musical foundation here that I very much appreciate, but this album never goes beyond the very bare and cold-blooded basics, leaving it rather empty in the end.
