  1. 10.0 |   The Skinny

    Welcome back Froberg, Reis and co. We never knew how much we missed you

  2. 9.1 |   A.V. Club

    Where 2004’s Audit In Progress was (relatively) restrained—Froberg wasn’t howling through every song—Jericho Sirens sounds more unstable and aggressive

  3. 9.0 |   Exclaim

    Comebacks are complicated, for bands and fans too, but this is one for the ages. Hot Snakes have returned, reminding those of us who've paid attention that they are definitively one of the greatest rock bands we've ever known

  4. 9.0 |   Punk News

    It’s great having the Hot Snakes back, and even greater to have them putting out a record filled an aggression that their peers can’t even come close to achieving

  5. 9.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    This is yet another example of Hot Snakes at the top of their game, except this time they gave 14 years in exile for other, lesser bands to catch up with them only to reclaim the throne with ease

  6. 8.0 |   Q

    This is a winner from start to finish. Print edition only

  7. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Hot Snakes' caustic, erudite commentary is more welcome than ever. Print edition only

  8. 8.0 |   All Music

    Jericho Sirens is rock & roll in its purest form; angry, white-hot, and overloaded with energy. It's good to have Hot Snakes back to show the posers and fakers how to do things the right way

  9. 8.0 |   Earbuddy

    They sound like a new band rather than one returning from a fourteen-year layoff

  10. 8.0 |   Under The Radar

    The Snakes pick up right where they left off, dropping a furious trio of primal bombs in just over six minutes

  11. 8.0 |   DIY

    Hot Snakes throw a hell of a rock and roll party

  12. 8.0 |   No Ripcord

    These mature punks sweat out their energy with vigorous and eloquent playing, and in doing so, also show their younger peers how it's done

  13. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Hot Snakes are as dry, dented and slightly demented as ever
    Read Review

  14. 7.7 |   Pitchfork

    Teeming with revved-up riffs and apocalyptic imagery, the post-hardcore group’s first album since 2005 reasserts their status as the most merciless band in their scene

  15. 7.5 |   Spectrum Culture

    Jericho Sirens rushes past like a massive wave of frenzy, panic and hysteria
