Pitchfork

The Philly band has achieved a balance between seething chaos and quietly devastating vulnerability. It’s one of the best punk rock records of the year.

Exclaim!

A record with a tighter vision, but just as much frenetic energy as Mannequin Pussy's previous work, Patience imbues both its highs and lows with a constant sense of intense strain and desperation.

AllMusic

Aptly named, Patience is the sound of a band who have spent a few years growing into themselves and it honors Mannequin Pussy's raw punk past while opening doors to new creative possibilities.

Ok, moment over!

I think what Mannequin Pussy does here works. They produce this very short, but riotous punk album that to me reminds me of a lot of the Hot Topic-esque bands of the early 2000s, but not in a bad way whatsoever. Certainly with its rebellious streak and a pop appeal, but my issue is that these songs don't leave too much of an impact on me. This album kinda just comes by and leaves ... read more

A really solid album. Mannequin Pussy continue to prove that they are more than a provocative name. Patience is a fiery 25 minutes; Marisa Dabice has the wonderful ability to play with the intensities of her voice on each track. I love the cohesion of the album, it really does feel like a tight punch in the eardrum that manages to shift emotions while keeping an aggressive edge.

I'm sold on that fucking band name! Great job, guys!

Mannequin Pussy's new album is breezy and energetic, showing Marisa's extremely versatile vocal ability across 25 minutes of well-produced punk tracks. My biggest complaint would have to be that it has few ideas in terms of sound, but it still hooked me throughout.

Fav Tracks: Cream, High Horse, Drunk II, Fear/+/Desire, In Love Again

Least Fav Track: F.U.C.A.W.

Philadelphia's punk rock outfit newest record, their first for Epitaph Records, finds them at their most dynamic and focused with tracks of volatile energy, from the catchy Drunk II to slower numbers like Fear/+/Desire or High Horse and the rapid hardcore punk energy of Clams that leaves no room to breathe. A furious record with a soft heart at its core, it's a winning moment for the band's exciting discography.

MP at their first band meeting:

Guitarist: "Now that we've come up with a memorable name, we should decide on what type of music to play. I was thinking that we could either be a power pop band or a punk rock band. Which do you prefer?"

Lead singer: "Yes."

I think that they alternate between the two styles admirably, but it does make it feel a bit incohesive. The runtime makes listening a breeze though. The lyrics are intensely personal and admirable. This fell short of ... read more
