Editorial Reviews:
Rolling Stone (p.64) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The results send the band's usual tornado time signatures through some serious synth-and-gear grind..." Entertainment Weekly (p.72) - "Their newest includes surprisingly sweet harmonies and dynamic choruses. But that's not to say they've gone pop -- NOCTOURNIQUET still packs enough sonic buzz saws to liquefy an ox." -- Grade: B+ Alternative Press (p.96) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala earns his MVP status as the psychic Sherpa negotiating the band's daring synergy of modern psychedelia, disorienting new wave and the tangled weaving of prog-rock and jazz-fusion idioms..." Magnet (p.60) - "[T]here's no mistaking the deliberate return to character that's written all over the record from start to finish." Billboard (p.28) - "Blending the directness of OCTAHEDRON with all sorts of whacked-out musicality and plenty of synthesizers, the act delivers one cascading ride after another..." Kerrang (Magazine) (p.51) - "[S]ongs like the floating 'Empty Vessels Make The Loudest Sound' suggest this is their best record yet." Mojo (Publisher) (p.92) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t is evident that guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez's production emphasizes the addition of textured, skittering electronics while accentuating the polished melodic hooks..."
