CRITIC REVIEWS

Beats Per Minute

Burst Apart is much more complex than its predecessor, both emotionally and musically.

90
Drowned in Sound

Burst Apart deserves all the plaudits that can be thrown at it; albums are rarely as unashamedly, gut-wrenchingly, genuinely emotional as this.

82
Pitchfork

It's all the more affecting for how it allows you to pick your own stumbling, lonely path.

80
PopMatters

Not only does Burst Apart rise to the occasion of following up an instant classic, it might even best Hospice in more ways than one.

In hindsight, I feel like I come back to this album much more than hospice. It's beautiful.
