CRITIC REVIEWS

90
Drowned in Sound

This is their best yet and possibly the best of the year.

90
NME

It still defiantly goes against the grain, but also explodes with immediate, attention-grabbing riffs.

80
musicOMH

Once again, the three brothers have cemented their status as one of the most exciting bands around.

73
Pitchfork

Perhaps it's the result of spending their adult lives on a major's dime, but this record is fueled by a naïve belief that radio hits are achievable and can be strong-armed.

60
The 405

The Brazen Bull is a slightly flabby beast.

50
No Ripcord

Although this may not be a masterpiece in the repertoire, I can’t say that it lacks anything in particular, in fact, the opposite is true. It gives too much

20
Under The Radar

Decidedly '90s in its sound, Belly falls somewhere between a doomed American college radio band and a one-album-only British copycat band.

Purchasing In the Belly of the Brazen Bull from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
