CRITIC REVIEWS

81
Pitchfork

Demolished Thoughts feels vital and purposed, more like a debut than an encore.

80
Drowned in Sound

Demolished Thoughts’ explorations take Moore as far from his punk roots as he has yet travelled, towards some pastoral folk hinterland.

musicOMH

Here is an album that is immediately engaging and yet demands repeated listens just to experience guitar chords from another land.

70
Consequence of Sound

It takes the acoustic tendencies of his last solo record and turns them to 11.

60
Paste

Demolished Thoughts either cannot or will not go far enough to distance the singer from his day job.

50
PopMatters

Thurston Moore’s acoustic solo album, Demolished Thoughts, is just long, slow, dull, and boring like a Thurston Moore acoustic album.

Leaving the color-by-numbers Sonic Youth template of the last solo release, he establishes himself as a solo artist firmly on his own 2 feet with much more fully-realized concepts and songwriting that leaves an impression.
