  1. 8.0 |   NME

    They've touched on punk and psychobilly, but the Atlanta stalwarts here settle into a country groove. It's not a new look, but they wear it well

  2. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    It is a document of a band piecing themselves together, but it is also hard not to listen to the record and treat it as a brief form of auditory respite as our actual, very real, world is falling apart

    Art-punk iconoclasts hit the honky tonks. Print edition only

  4. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    Black Lips concoct a lustful mix of cocaine country, psych stomp, and honky-tonk fire and brimstone on Sing in a World That's Falling Apart.

  5. 8.0 |   The Arts Desk

  6. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Some career-catchiest tunes and a lively self-production make Sing an absolute triumph in repositioning. Print edition only

  7. 7.5 |   Under The Radar

    If you've given them a listen before and were turned off by the rough style or juvenile and weird sense of humor, the country turn probably won't win you over. If that is what you love about Black Lips though, Sing in a World That's Falling Apart delivers no shortage of crowd-pleasing, honkey-tonk fun

  13. 5.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    This iteration of the band is mildly entertaining but it’s probably best enjoyed live and when very drunk
