CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Record Collector
It's an outlandishly pretentious addition to the ork-pop tradition (and all the better for it) with the much-missed Zdar steering the vessel with his usual verve and assurance.
80
Clash
Sons Of Raphael’s ability to transport the listener through airy pop, dreamy soundscapes is stronger than ever.
70
Loud and Quiet

Clearly capable of talking the talk, Full Throated Messianic Homage also suggests a capacity for walking the walk, playing like a woozy whistle-stop tour through the last decade or so or off-kilter psych-pop.

The Line of Best Fit

Furtively hooking you in to its submissive, suffused stride Full-Throated Messianic Homage fades away after half an hour of graciously filthy pomp. Terrible albums deserve love too.

What the record does well is create a mood ... What it’s less adept at is giving us anything memorable; a song; even something to feel.

Dork
While you’ve got to applaud the absolute single-minded nature and ambition of vision that this debut represents, a little bit too much falls into the ‘this is nonsense and not the good type’ camp for it to really land consistently.
