The album is an object lesson in sustained tension, reinforced with the toughest of hooks and complex dynamics which suggest a certain familiarity with the murky world of prog while remaining firmly grounded in aggressive, energetic punk-informed rock. And the riffs! Every track is blessed with the kind of infectious gut-level riffage lesser bands would give not only their eye teeth but a mouthful of precious pearly whites to procure. Taint have delivered one of this year's most powerful albums, and a wake up call to British rock.
Taint comes across as a group of musicians who just happen to like many different types of aggressive rock, and their broad-mindedness serves them well on this hard-hitting, infectious disc. - All Music4/5
