Give this album the room it deserves, and you will dance and swoon repeatedly to what is a rather wonderful record.


It's a challenging listen at times, but's there's never a moment where the effort doesn't feel worth it and the rewards of digging deep into the sounds and songs are many.

Loud and Quiet
Of course, there are many fine exponents of this kind of music, and it’s a genre where it’s sometimes difficult to spot the differences. But Lorelle Meets The Obsolete are particularly good at what they do – this is powerful and viscerally exciting stuff.
The Observer

While most of these songs weigh in at around the three-minute mark, the two highlights come when they stretch out and lock into lengthier grooves.

Horrendously boring with a couple of oustanding guitar riffs thrown into the mix on occasion
Este álbum é experimental, gerando milhares de interpretações, todas elas diferentes. Na minha interpretação, o grupo musical acertou em cheio nas faixas mais longas ("Unificado" e "La Maga") e perderam o foco nas faixas mais simples, tornando-as aleatórias e vazias. É um bom esforço.
Feel this has some Anna Von Hausswolff vibes at times. Nice instrumentation and vocals but for whatever reason I find this weak. Tows the thin line between meditative and boring a lot. Still pleasant just not very interesting or expressive, I wanna like it more but, agh.
Encuentro el LP en ciertos aspectos interesante, en canciones como Lineas en Hojas o Acción Vaciar, incluso en Lux, Lumina me llevé una gran sorpresa respecto a la capacidad creativa que contiene este LP, por otro lado, encuentro algunas canciones algo aburridas y olvidables. Me gusta la cohesión en algunos tracks como El Derrumbe y la Maga, pero no terminan de llamarme del todo la atención. Sin embargo, sigue siendo un LP agradable de escuchar.
The pulsing atmosphere of Double Negative meets the eccentric echoey vocals of Aviary meets the hazy production of Preoccupations - which is all to say the influences are a little obvious. Still, it's surprisingly catchy and I do enjoy moments like the throbbing build of "Ana" or the surprise 80s turn on "Inundacion." Kinda like Shame last year, this thing has the advantage of coming out during what's otherwise a fairly dead time for music releases, but I'm glad for that ... read more
