CRITIC REVIEWS

Northern Transmissions

You can’t say TV Priest is just a post-punk or an indie rock band after listening to this album. They push the envelope while keeping it genuine to themselves and their audience.

Dork

There’s no doubt that this is a new era for the London four-piece as they endeavour to express a truer version of themselves while maintaining their hardy punk appearance.

Louder Than War

They have somehow changed direction yet maintained that gritty sermon like darkness we all have a tendency to grab on to.

Distorted Sound

This is a triumphant collection of songs that will enchant you, make you relate to them and captivate you in equal measure, all soundtracked by some of the best soundscapes you will hear all year.

I think this album suffers from a lot of the same problems as its debut, where there are good-to-great moments scattered throughout the project, but overall these are just fleeting moments in a mess of slog. This is especially apparent in the beginning, but as you surpass the ... read more
