CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Pitchfork

This is the rare album that reveals new depth within a catalog that already seemed so deep and ruminative while proclaiming rather unlimited possibilities for a band nearing the end of its first decade.

70
Tiny Mix Tapes

While Locrian’s molding of the rock idiom to the apocalyptic theme isn’t novel, their use is often more nuanced than their predecessor’s appropriations of the same ideas.

70
Consequence of Sound

Return to Annihilation has its darker tones, but it also has bright moments and sees the band developing variation in its songwriting.

70
PopMatters

The strongest element the band took from its prog forebears for this compact, powerful record is just the sense of the album as a journey, one that feels complete.

Pretty poor
60
An album that can have fantastic moments, catchy melodies, powerful and tormenting fuzzy sounds that suffer from length, songs veering of course, songs becoming too elongated, superfluous; it struggles to maintain quality throughout.
