CRITIC REVIEWS

100
No Ripcord

Overall, this album contains some of the most original and hypnotically brilliant rock music ever recorded.

90
Drowned in Sound

It’s freeform and vividly Technicolor, washes of sound more like words on a page or colours on canvas open to interpretation, rather than the more precise cinematic directions of say, a script.

90
FACT Magazine

Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II is the sound of old rope; tough, unassuming, stained and shined with use.

80
The 405

Its clear that Earth and Carlson are shaping up to continue to successfully innovate and transcend instrumental styles and genres for some time to come.

80
Consequence of Sound

This album’s not metal, but it’s still heavy as all get-out. It’s also incredibly beautiful and soothing– perfect music for laid-back late-night hours.

79
Pitchfork

This version of Earth has simply given Carlson more room and more assistance to explore, well, darkness and light-- in his own time, of course.

78
Beats Per Minute

Whereas Part I is predominantly riff-based with an improvisatory tinge, Part II feels more unstructured and portrays a very different band.

75
A.V. Club

At its best, Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light II shimmers and mesmerizes like a mirage; but like a mirage, it also quenches less than it should.

70
musicOMH

There's a lack of grinding guitars, but the essence of Earth remains at the heart on these compositions.

60
Under The Radar

Look, it's Earth, still with the new cellist and bassist in tow, saddling up for another funeral march toward the bleak horizon.
