CRITIC REVIEWS

The Arts Desk

Richard H Kirk’s continued use of the Cabaret Voltaire moniker is no misuse of the name or reputational misstep, as Shadow of Fear is up there with some of the band’s better albums.

Uncut

The abiding atmosphere may be rather uneasy to suit the world it was created in, but Shadow of Fear is a brash and confident rebirth.

Mojo
Richard H Kirk re-imagines the Sheffield-clank brand for 2020.

AllMusic

Even though Kirk used a restrained setup of vintage equipment to make Shadow of Fear, his vibrant energy and "don't look back" attitude keep the album sounding fresh and forward-thinking.

The Guardian
The first Cabaret Voltaire album in more than two decades feels oddly of the moment, their grim presentiments about disinformation, curfews and crackdowns fulfilled.

Northern Transmissions
Combining the past with the present and sounding like a combination of both, this cold wave epic should find its way easily into many electronica loving hearts, albeit the darker the heart, the more successful the endeavour should prove.

It could be an epic come back after 26 years from their last album and it's a great album, industrial sounds old school pretty cool,
