  1. 10.0 |   The Skinny

    A modern day electro masterclass

  2. 8.0 |   music OMH

    The record is exhilarating, and not just because of how many sounds are cranked up to 11. The band have assembled a great selection of tunes that showcase a wide variety of styles, and Deleter is highly recommended for those on the intersection between electronica and rock

  3. 8.0 |   DIY

    It successfully blurs boundaries between time and space

  4. 8.0 |   All Music

    Tipping closer to dance-pop than noise-rock, Deleter is one of Holy Fuck's most finely tuned albums, yet the band sound as spontaneous as ever

  5. 8.0 |   God Is In The TV

    They’ve gone all out to make something captivating, polyrhythmic and blissed-out. I’m not sure if it’s aural catnip or if it’s exhausting and overstimulating. It may be both

    Despite there being little opportunity for euphoric release, it's easy to lose yourself in Deleter's darker, more brutal moments. Print edition only

  10. 6.0 |   NME

    Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor, Pond’s Nick Allbrook and Liars’ Angus Andrew guide the stalwart group into new territory as they "start over again"

  11. 5.5 |   Spectrum Culture

    There’s a lack of playfulness that infused Holy Fuck’s earlier work

  12. 4.0 |   Crack

    Sure, there are moments on the album that demonstrate Holy Fuck’s ability to electrify, but our sonic landscape has significantly shifted and developed since the band first carved out their sound. Too much of the material on Deleter sounds oblivious to this, and as a result, dated
