  1. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    Finds Fake reinvigorated, having worked through writer's block to find inspiration in a virtual analog synth from the mid '90s, the Korg Prophecy

  2. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    Fake has created a truly impressive release – managing to weave together diverse and eclectic sounds into a cohesive whole

  3. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    Fake has managed to create a distinctive album that sounds little like what he has done before. In many respects, it sounds more flexible as it constantly evolves and shapeshifts

  4. 8.0 |   Resident Advisor

    Providence marks a muscular new path for Fake, but he sounds as singular as always

  5. 7.0 |   All Music

    Providence was recorded fairly quickly, as it came to Fake in a sudden burst of inspiration, and while it often sounds messy, usually it's endearingly so

  7. 7.0 |   God Is In The TV

    Succeeds in being a good record rather than a great one. It’s a snapshot of where a fair old chunk of electronic music is at the moment

  8. 6.0 |   Crack

    Often feels lukewarm

  9. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    Fake lets brightly saturated synths and awkward rhythms take centre stage on a strange and dislocated record

  10. 6.0 |   The Observer

    Vast, shifting soundscapes
    Read Review

  11. 6.0 |   Q

    A listening experience that's frequently compelling, but rarely comforting. Print edition only

  12. 6.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    While Providence is by no means a failure or throwaway LP, as a body of work, it doesn't quite keep you enthralled

  13. 6.0 |   State

    The results, while not exactly masterpiece-level, is well worth a listen for anyone who enjoys their electronic music weird and confrontational
