CRITIC REVIEWS

80
XLR8R

Tooth is best devoured as a whole and without distractions; its singular sound and delivery is one that Raime has tirelessly honed into a steadfast concoction of brooding dystopia.

Exclaim!

Tooth demonstrates Raime as multi-dimensional musicians, even if you have to travel through a black hole to get to those dimensions.

Resident Advisor
The result is an album that takes its lead from bands like This Heat and Ike Yard but boils their urgency down to a throbbing core of contemporary dread, all the propulsive rhythms tied up in knots.

The 405

Tooth may not be any less difficult to take in as a whole, but this time around, they've at least offered a slightly easier entry point into the sometimes bleak but fascinating realm they occupy.

Drowned in Sound
At first listen, you might think there’s not much of an album here as an EP with different takes on the same idea: creepy sub-bass lines, monochrome guitars, held back percussions. But it’s the overall feel of the record that grows into something way more impressive.

PopMatters

It may not be as varied and as inventive as its more radical forerunner, but it nonetheless offers a very penetrating illustration of the post-social, estranged urban environment we often inhabit, doing what it does very well despite doing it a tad too much.

☆½ ~ Exiguous and quite unsteady listen. Not my thing.
