  2. 8.0 |   Mojo

    These mostly instrumental voyages speak loudly of no known universe. Print edition only

    Adds up to more than the sum of its parts. Print edition only

  4. 8.0 |   God Is In The TV

    The vocals of Taz, former Dizzee Rascal collaborator on closer ‘Gun Law’ sees the album end on another high note of buzzing bass and raw vocals, confirming that Sherwood & Pinch are far more than a one-trick pony

  5. 8.0 |   The Quietus

    Continues in the vein of Late Night Endless with Sherwood and Pinch’s synthesis of contrasting elements, but altogether it is a much smoother, more accomplished ride

  6. 7.0 |   Clash

  11. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    For every tough-hitting dub attack such as Gun Law, there’s a softer focus in the wash in the shape of a sweet cover of Ryuichi Sakamoto’s Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence

  12. 6.0 |   The Independent

    A masterclass in soundscaping mystery and imagination which somehow yokes together the individual producer/DJs’ separate territories
