CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Consequence of Sound

Chaos can’t exist without a touch of clarity, and if that was their intention all along, then consider The Marriage of True Minds a mild breakthrough.

76
Beats Per Minute

It’s an album that resembles a scientific experiment: full of possibility, full of calculated movements, full of momentous moments of synthesis, full of potential disaster. 

75
Pitchfork

The Marriage of True Minds hits harder and feels more joyfully physical than anything Matmos has done in years.

70
DIY

The song structures are comparatively comprehensible, and ultimately, the whole process would be somewhat superfluous if the duo weren’t capable of creating something worthwhile to sonically experience. 

70
The 405

Despite initially sounding disparate and unfocused, given time, it coalesces into something which is cohesive in its own unconventional way.

60
Drowned in Sound

Even after having listened to this album many times, it seems no clearer as to whether it is a collection of underdeveloped song ideas or the well produced outakes of an intriguing idea.

40
Under The Radar

As a scientific experiment, it may have value, but it does not make for pleasant listening.
