  1. 9.0 |   Gigwise

    Another great-sounding record intricately woven with influence

  2. 8.0 |   Vinyl Chapters

    If you enjoy good-fashioned psych-rock, you’re in business with L.W. It offers plenty of new flavours to satisfy the hungriest of rockers

  3. 8.0 |   Under The Radar

    Yes, this is their seventeenth album in 11 years. But they leave no stone unturned or path unexplored. Look out for more of the same sonic (and microtonal) exploration in the very near future—maybe even later this year

  4. 8.0 |   Clash

    This is an impressive and well-rounded collection of work from the hard-working Australians

  5. 8.0 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    With their feet up on the couch and laurels well and truly rested upon, they’ve gifted us with L.W. which (excepting its sister record) is undoubtedly the most comfortable LP the group has released in quite some time

  6. 8.0 |   All Music

  8. 7.0 |   Exclaim

    L.W. may not boast many surprises, but it cements its makers as masters of their realm

  9. 5.7 |   Beats Per Minute

    The best that can be said is that there are a few good tracks in an otherwise mediocre album
