Dark and at times beautiful, Part II is an excellent conclusion to this ambitious and sprawling project.

80
DIY
Nine times out of ten, the scale of their ambition pays monumental dividends.
80
Distorted Sound

It’s 2022 and all bets are off but with HEALTH and their band of collaborators in control with this series of deadly tracks, the future of forward thinking music is definitely in good hands.

80
Gigwise

Their ability to balance bellicose clamour with progressive musicality is unmatched, and DISCO4 :: PARTII paves the way for fledgling artists to embrace and utilise the talents of their peers to broaden their sonic palette, and seek innovation at every turn.

80
Metal Hammer

Each entry is a dark pop masterclass, armed with hooks gigantic enough to catch a great white shark.

AllMusic

When Duzsik and company finish DISCO4 :: Pt. II with the surging solo track "These Days 2.0.2.1.," they complete an impressive project that brings illuminating new perspectives to their music -- and perhaps some more artists to their listeners' attention.

80
Upset

In so many ways, HEALTH feel just as vital as they ever did.

70
Crack Magazine

Not so much a disco as an apocalyptic circle pit, PART II veers heavily into the eviscerating noise that HEALTH do so well.

70
The Line of Best Fit

Whilst at times DISCO::4 Part II might feel morbid, its urgent, vital sounds provide a much needed antidote to the anxieties of the world we currently live in.

60
Spectrum Culture

The top tracks stand head-and-shoulders above the rest and nearly justify all of DISCO 4:: PART II. But who knows, this may just be another stepping point for HEALTH to build off of for their next full length.

60
Kerrang!

HEALTH are quickly becoming one of the most intriguing and respected acts around, and while DISCO4:: PART II isn't perfect, it's definitely worth your time.

NO NUANCE REVIEW

While these collab projects still don’t feel like a cohesive body of work, I think they’ve lead to some of Health’s individual songs in a while. This project especially features many great high point song wise and are a great spotlight not only on Health as a band but some of the most exciting acts in experimental, heavy, and industrial music. It probably won’t be the best full length listen you hear this year, but if you give it a listen you’ll ... read more

Once again, Health is back with a new installment in this series and it is as expected heavy on the features. As much as I love the production Health has been giving us on these recent projects, the song quality is often dependent on the features. I find the production once again masks up a few songs that would otherwise be stale. Nine Inch Nails, Poppy, Maenad Veyl, and Ekkstacy did fantastic on their features where as Lamb of God completely ruined the vibe. The production throughout ties it ... read more

Health put together album so stacked with features from my favorite artists it’s like they made it for me! In reality many are probably thinking this because holy shit that’s a lot legends, Health themselves included.

The production here is next level. A lot of features from artists I like, and some from ones i’m not the biggest fans of, leading me to not be a fan of some of the songs here. The songs I am a fan of though, they are great.

Let's get one thing clear, when this album's multitude of collaborations click this is some of the best stuff I have heard the entire year by far. However, not everything clicks. Still Breathing, No Escape, and especially the groan-worthy Cold Blood do miss the mark. However, songs like Dead Flowers, Isn't Everyone, and Pagan Iconz absolutely pop off and kick ass on an interstellar level of harsh darkness. This is an album I could reevaluate down the line and increase the score of, but right ... read more
