Kerrang!
This relative looseness, one suspects, is the sound of enjoyment being had by its creators - not necessarily in what they’re writing about, which is often no picnic, but revelling in the sheer liberation of creating exactly the music they want. And wonderful it is too.

The Line of Best Fit

Though it might well have lost some of the raw catharsis harboured by those records, Black Foxxes is an album that instead showcases the band’s sheer talent, proving them as not just one of the best alt-rock bands around, but one of the more interesting bands around. Period.

Black Foxxes v2.0 are opening Pandora’s box of riffs and seeking epic vistas vaster and further reaching than ever before.

Upset

Despite the changes, at their core, it’s the same brilliant and bold Black Foxxes and this, their self-titled third album, is a confident step forward into a bright future.

I was expecting this thing to suck, but it has surprisingly good production and atmospheric soundscapes to back up the aggressive alt-rock instrumentals. Even if there are some obvious highlights amongst some weaker tracks, Black Foxxes definitely manage to surpass their mediocre contemporaries.

Nirvana and Jeff Buckley cover band make well textured music with unexpected encounters at every turn. This shit SLAPS!!!!!

Black Foxxes s/t is an excellent alt-rock release from an excellent Exeter based band.
With slick riffs, more experimentation than previous releases, ever stunning Jeff Buckley-esque vocals and just generally being laced with sultry swagger this album was all I could hope for.
BIG UP EXETER!

The vocals are so grating it ruins any enjoyment I would have had through the instrumentals which can be pretty impressive at times.

A chaotic, and distorted at some points, alternative rock album with some touches of experimentation and interesting instrumentals. Just revisited this again and the tracks that I considered boring and uninteresting weren't as bad as I first thought.
