CRITIC REVIEWS

Pitchfork

The group's sophomore effort, Public Strain, pushes forward in both directions-- the hooks are noisier, the noise is hookier, and both are fogged over with enough reverb to make Felt records seem bone-dry by comparison.

Tiny Mix Tapes

So no, Public Strain isn’t the manic, dirty opus Women was. But it’s still Women. And I’m still in love with it.

No Ripcord

Yes, it’s fine to use the same methods Mr. Reed implemented, but to dole out several minutes of junk noise doesn’t make you seem unique, clever, or even like students of the game; it makes you sound pretentious.

If you think this is boring you haven't given it enough listens.

Pretty cutting edge, 2010 must have been a crazy year for music.

But I've already forgotten every single song on this album, maybe it's because I've been clustering myself in a mess of music for a while now.
