CRITIC REVIEWS

80
AllMusic

Remarkably, Turbines makes the right choices at almost every turn, never meandering or spending too much time indulging one idea but instead leaving just enough unsaid to keep drawing the listener back.

The Line of Best Fit

Far from feeling like a tired riff on an established formula, Turbines might just be the most definitive Tunng record yet.

75
The 405

Each separate element of Tunng's sound has been refined over the years, and on Turbines they sound like their most confident selves. 

70
Drowned in Sound

Tunng have been moving towards this downbeat place slowly, and their arrival here shows a real cohesion in them as songwriters and as a band. It’s less the sound of a band losing their edge and more the sound of them finding their zen.

70
DIY

It’s reassuring to note that, now five albums in, Tunng continue to distill and refine their sound, honing their craft to create their most accomplished album yet.

The band constantly tread a fine line between eerie romanticism and tweeness but, for the most part, they mostly steer a careful, steady course on Turbines.
