CRITIC REVIEWS

DIY

‘Echolocation’ is a bleak affair, but it does have a number of impressive melodies and a clear sense of the liberation that music elicits in the band itself.

A.V. Club

Gone Is Gone will more than satisfy anyone who needs a good headbang; hopefully by its next release, the band will trim the fat and only show the leaner, more distinct parts of itself.

Consequence of Sound

While it’s a relief that there’s no supergroup pretension present, it’s also a shame that it sounds like the original projects of its members thrown into a blender cranked to its highest setting. That kind of blending obscures the individual contributions of each musician, which ultimately renders Echolocation a dull effort.

Northern Transmissions

While expertly performed, the formula never fully energizes the LP.

Had to literally drop my headphones, walk out of my house (it's 10 degrees F outside), look up at the sky, and scream "Why did you allow this God! WHY!" right after Roads started playing and I realized it was a Portishead cover. Disgraceful.

What do we have here?
A hard rock supergroup, carrying such a heavy burden that is nearly impossible to move even if their music bags are empty!

Dark and brooding, with some interesting lyrical themes to uncover as well.
