  1. 8.2 |   Beats Per Minute

    Gas Lit is an important record from an important band. It doesn’t attempt to make things palatable for you, and nor should it. The record is a provocation to a difficult conversation, one that in all honesty shouldn’t really still have to take place in 2021

  5. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Dissonant yet heavenly, Gas Lit is an album that seethes, soothes, liberates and bewitches in equal measures. Print edition only

  7. 7.0 |   All Music

    Creating an atmosphere that's brooding, anguished, and at times ecstatic, Divide and Dissolve communicate their righteous outrage in a way that doesn't require words to be explicit and effective

  8. 6.0 |   Uncut

    Their conceptual hinterland is sometimes more interesting than their clobbering racket, but both are exhilarating in places. Print edition only
