  1. 9.0 |   music OMH

    The feeling of claustrophobia and oppression that sometimes characterises this music is tempered by a subtle melodic sensibility and a riveting group dynamic. Rispah is a brilliantly sustained meditation that offers a full, enriching experience

  2. 9.0 |   The Fly

    Irrespective of genre or decade, ‘Rispah’ is an astonishing tsunami of emotion which above all, makes you feel alive

  3. 8.5 |   BBC

    This is every second the sound of progress, comparable to Wild Beasts’ discernable development from Limbo, Panto to Two Dancers. And it deserves comparable levels of critical acclaim

    The spectre of loss haunts every groove and syllable. Print edition only

  5. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

  9. 7.0 |   Uncut

    The wonderfully groggy textures will stay with you like the best kind of sonic Valium. Print edition only

  10. 6.0 |   The Skinny

    Akin to a more percussive and modish Kid A, the record is also full of nods to African gospel music

  11. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    Radiohead are the band's obvious peers, and maybe this is something the Invisible could do with signposting less obviously
