  2. 8.0 |   The Independent

    Each track makes unpredictable bedfellows of certain sounds; even the deceptively simple guitar ballad, “Gross”, drops a synth that sends ripples through Von Schleicher’s lilting top register

  3. 8.0 |   Uncut

    Layered vocal effects and unexpected rhythms on tracks like "Messenger" and "Loud" reward repeated listens, while the pounding, jagged drums of "Caged Sleep" and blissed-out fuzz-pop of "Wheel" offer immediate satisfaction. Print edition only

    A cohesive, nuanced, highly impressive statement

  9. 6.0 |   Mojo

    Too opaque to fully connect, Consummation keeps its mystery high. Print edition only
