100% The Skinny There's clear progression in the Sad sound, with the record tipping its hat to krautrock here and there.
100% Drowned in Sound For a band that built its reputation on ferocity (of both emotion and volume), there was a blanket over the sharp edges and a muted undercurrent to the whole collection.
90% Under the Radar Magazine The disorienting, dark beginning gives the first impression of a band that have grown up, widened their palette, and are now reaching for the stratosphere.
90% Soundblab In its dynamics and its somewhat unexpected appreciation for beauty amidst its jagged edges, one of the albums it reminds me of most is Whipping Boy’s classic Heartworm.
85% The 405 Authenticity is an often misunderstood termed used as a means of validation in both music criticism and popular discourse.
80% Irish Times Robert Smith has repeatedly called them his favourite band, evangelically lavishing them with praise and numerous support slots.
80% New Musical Express Hailing them as “the best band playing the best songs – consistently brilliant, emotional, intense, inspiring, entertaining,” he put the wind back in their sails and advised them on what would become their first album in five years.

70% Earbuddy Anyways, writing about The Twilight Sad now gives us the advantage of reflecting on the critical praise of this album.
