CRITIC REVIEWS

A.V. Club

Rather than merely aiming at populism, though, Brooks has set a new personal best for what he’s been doing for almost 20 years: turning pop anthems into earthmovers.

PopMatters

Many (most?) songs on Harmonicraft could fit comfortably into a more conventional arena setting than the ones from their murkier beginnings.

Drowned in Sound

It’s not a monumental leap forward from the band’s previous work, but Harmonicraft displays the signs of consistent refinement and revels in that fact.

65
Pitchfork

Given all Harmonicraft's inherent turnaround, it's surprising to hear just how codified and predictable Torche sound at this point.

Purchasing Harmonicraft from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
