CRITIC REVIEWS

Drowned in Sound

The Sophtware Slump is clearly the product of a fragile, sensitive mind; one plagued by unease relating to the oncoming turn of the century and the gradual loss of interaction with our environment. But as stated, it is not a vision bereft of hope or vestiges of clarity

NME
They have found a way to reconcile man and machine – by taking control of the devices at hand and making something truly beautiful, mysterious and timeless.

Pitchfork

The Sophtware Slump manages to sound reasonably fresh, yields its share of unshakable melodies, and excels in production. This is quite possibly the last great entry in the atmospheric pop canon.

only a band like grandaddy can pull of a song about a depressed, alcoholic robot and pull it off. this album is so ahead of its time and deserves all the recognition it gets.

It's a rather unusual experience. But one I find myself returning to time and again.
