Even though Post Self isn't exactly what was expected, it's a masterful release from two musicians who seem to be incapable of creating anything short of exquisite.

Pitchfork

Post Self, the duo’s eighth LP and third release since reconvening in 2014, is easily the group’s best effort in over 20 years, not to mention 2017’s best industrial-metal album.

80
AllMusic

Post Self is more moody than direct, and isn't the most hard-hitting, immediate album in the Godflesh catalog, but for anyone who equally appreciates Broadrick's metal and electronic sides, the album is as stunning as one would expect.

80
Alternative Press

On their eighth album, the breadth of Godflesh’s influences are wider than ever, and their capacity for psychological excavation runs deeper. In a world where we keep adjusting the speed and volume of our respective political echo chambers, Post Self is probably the best record to have around when all the bombs finally land.

80
Under The Radar

In the end, Post Self settles to balance between Jesu's shoegaze wasteland and Godflesh's constraining rhythms and doom-laden riffs. The balance between the two bands permits Broadrick to explore inward while still allowing for his visceral criticism of a world gone mad.

80
No Ripcord

Simply put, Post Self is another stunning addition to Godflesh’s uncompromising thirty-year run.

The UK industrial metal duo mix in elements of noise rock and electronic ambiance on what may be the late '80s band's defining album.

It also ranked at #5 on my Top 10 Metal Albums of 2017... https://medium.com/offner-offbeat/top-10-metal-albums-of-2017-dd2f1afc068

An undeniably brutal exercise in suffocating atmosphere, POST-SELF sounds like it could have been made 35 years ago and just been unearthed.
