‘An extraordinary comeback’ the NME
‘Exciting and angular, their first album for 26 years actually pretty good’Q
‘Something quite special’ Drowned in Sound 9/10
There have been some brilliant and breathtaking “guitar records” this year. And this is one of them. Maybe, in terms of sheer breadth of ambition, courage, and devil-take-the-hindmost intelligence, it’s the best one…album of the year.’ Incendiary website
‘The new Membranes album is epic, stunning and beautiful. Its strength is its diversity – ranging from angular noise to neo classical, from enveloping drones to ground breaking soundscapes to dark dub brilliance’ Classic Rock 10/10 album review
