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.

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.

Lead singer: "Yes."

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.

God, I love this band. Another big ass mess that accomplishes what not many bands can. The level of confidence you have to have to throw together a record like this I huge. I can understand this might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I'm a sucker for records like this.
