    Read Review

  2. 9.0 |   Northern Transmissions

    There’s a real cohesiveness at work here across the album and in my opinion, it contains some of the strongest and frankly impressive songwriting of their career

  3. 9.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Iceage continue heading directly for the stars on the sprawling and powerful Seek Shelter

  4. 9.0 |   Exclaim

    Seek Shelter, as a whole, finds Iceage refusing to be pigeonholed and instead reaching out — exploring life, love and the lack thereof — and ending up exactly where they should be

  5. 8.5 |   Under The Radar

    Seek Shelter is an album that surges irrepressibly from the outset and peaks at regular intervals over the course of its nine pieces. It represents Iceage’s most studied body of work to date

  6. 8.3 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Seek Shelter is a rich representation of Iceage’s bravery as a band. It’s impossible to describe what a “typical Iceage song” consists of, because it simply does not exist. They consistently push new boundaries and forge out new paths in their work, showcasing a knack for innovation

  7. 8.3 |   Pitchfork

    With production by Peter Kember and an added gospel choir, the Danish band’s fifth album completes their transformation from grim-faced nihilists to wearied soothsayers

  8. 8.3 |   Beats Per Minute

    Seek Shelter isn’t the big, era-defining statement, but a transitional album for the quintet, opening up the possibility of rock’n’roll in their arsenal

  9. 8.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    With each new album, Iceage suggest that they are pushing their boundaries farther than before. Is Seek Shelter their most technically innovative record? No. But is there reinvention here? Of a sort. The boundaries of genre don’t really matter if the record holds up, and it does

  10. 8.0 |   musicOMH

    Exploring increasingly adventurous songwriting terrains and expanding their studio capabilities whilst managing to retain some of the fire that once sparked up their engines, Iceage have delivered another tour de force

  11. 8.0 |   Uncut

    SeekShelter sees them heartily embrace everything from country and gospel influences in “High &Hurt" and the rabble-rousing title track, to the Madchester dance-rock of “Vendetta”. Print edition only

  12. 8.0 |   Mojo

    At a time when you can't see other people, let alone be in sweaty a room full of them, it's a reminder of just how life- affirming music can be. Print edition only

  13. 8.0 |   NME

    The fierce 90-second ragers of their early days might now have morphed over the last decade into vast anthems, but the band remain as razor-sharp as ever

  14. 7.8 |   Spectrum Culture

    Adding yet more wrinkles to their ever-evolving sound, Denmark’s Iceage further solidify themselves as a shining light in rock’s post-imperial era

  15. 7.7 |   Paste Magazine

    The Copenhagen rockers’ fifth album is a statement of tireless reinvention

  16. 7.0 |   All Music

    Iceage's rugged roots may be gone and perhaps there are less thorns, but Seek Shelter is still a rose by any other name

  17. 7.0 |   Clash

    Those that are used to their favourite tunes packing an immediate punch may be left disappointed, but the time spent ruminating has clearly served them well
    Read Review

  18. 6.0 |   Upset

    Half menacing, half casual; the album is bound together only by a churlishly vicious intent and a continued restless edge
