  1. 9.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    ‘Death Peak’ has the remarkable effect of disorientating its audience in such a way that, save for a couple of mild lulls, it makes complete sense mid-listen and very little once the record finishes

  2. 8.5 |   The Quietus

    Clark’s skill in producing not just songs, but soundscapes as a portal to another musical dimension is brought to the fore
    Read Review

  3. 8.3 |   A.V. Club

    As purely individual a statement as the English producer has released yet
    Read Review

  4. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    It just seems to say that life happens, and confirms Clark's production is still as much commiseration as it is abandon

  5. 8.0 |   The 405

    Despite its otherwise grim title, it plumbs emotional depths even further and creates a more vivid and exciting picture of what Clark is capable of this late in his career,

  6. 8.0 |   Earbuddy

    Death Peak sounds like a Julianna Barwick album hyped up on cocaine. This peak is worth the climb

  9. 7.5 |   Beardfood

    His winning streak continues
    Read Review

  10. 7.4 |   Pitchfork

    A more accessible, more human album that still reinforces his outré techno dreams and arpeggiated fantasies

  11. 7.3 |   Paste Magazine

    Death Peak has some brilliantly immersive moments throughout
    Read Review

  12. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    Death Peak is an album-length argument for Clark's assertion that the human voice is "the most perfect synth"

  13. 7.0 |   Clash

    Industrial experimentalism that treads a pretty glorious path
    Read Review

  14. 7.0 |   The Music

    After 16 years in the game there's no sign of Clark's creativity waning
    Read Review

  15. 6.0 |   Q

    An album of hidden depths. Print edition only

  16. 5.5 |   Spectrum Culture

    A minor record in the Clark catalog, and it’s a worrying one
