CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Under The Radar

They've found their stride—really completed the vision—here.

79
Paste

Through carefree crescendos and poignant harmonies, the album stays true to its roots, but in a more constructed manner

69
Pitchfork

Violens seem to have hit their sweet spot here, though, so hopefully they'll continue drilling in the same place instead of looking for more history that's ripe for plundering.

65
The 405

There's a level of intrigue about what they will do, and although that might not be the best thing in ensuring success, True does offer up some brilliant tracks.

60
Consequence of Sound

While True is more focused than their all-over-the-place debut, Amoral, it still continues the Brooklyn trio’s tradition of defying classification.

There's nothing on True which marks itself out distinctly enough for it to warrant more than a passing glance.

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