Drowned in Sound

With Last Days on Earth, the persistently-versatile Noah continue to set to music those picturebooks of get-togethers, easy plateaus and break-ups that we’ve all got stored in our heads and add to year-on-year.


Here, they've lost both the rinky-dink whimsy of their debut and the subdued strength of its follow-up, splitting the difference to arrive at an album that's as artfully inflated as it is vacuous and forgettable.

No Ripcord

In deciding to merge their folky leanings with electronic beats and samples, they’re treading a path well-worn by countless other bands in recent years.

Consequence of Sound

What this album is lacking is excitement and conflict, originality and surprise.
