CRITIC REVIEWS

80
The Skinny
The fifth album from Chicago quartet Disappears is so massive, so spatially aware that it appears to descend from an unattainable height without ever touching down.
80
AllMusic

Irreal's minimalism is an uncompromising and often riveting testament to Disappears' integrity, which seems to be the only constant in their music.

70
Drowned in Sound

While Irreal might prove a difficult conundrum for those that favour their music structured in an orderly, compartmentalized fashion, perseverance has its rewards. Intriguing.

Pitchfork
Disappears have traded in their last pop streak for a world of stark and brutal rhythm.
70
No Ripcord
No matter to whom Disappears owe its sound, the band’s ability to captivate and unsettle is theirs.
67
Consequence of Sound

It’s a sonic exercise that’s daunting, exciting, and at other times frustrating. But it’s never boring, and when so much music sticks to the script, Disappears still thrill by coloring far outside the lines.

Disciplined dark-wave that reaches brutality but never tastes its breath.
