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

AllMusic

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.

Uncut

Alternately bruising and beatific (and often in rapid succession), De Facto marks another advance.

60
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

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.

Outstanding record I wouldn’t be shocked if it’s on my AOTY list when that time comes.

Beautiful dreamy vocals accompanied by psychedelic rock. I can’t find a flaw here. My rating may change with time.

This album is truly breathtaking

Another all over the place boring mess like Chambers. More of an annoyance then an enjoyable jam various times.
