4.0 excellentShane B. | July 3rd 15

How are people acting like noise rock was never part of this bands sound since the beginning? It's always been around guys

4.5 superbMetaltronic | June 23rd 15

Success is completely different from every other KEN Mode album; this is waaaaaaay noisier and abrasive. It's total Jesus Lizard and other similar '80s & '90s noise rock band worship, but they pull it off EXTREMELY well. If you're into anything Steve Albini has been involved with or really noisy post-hardcore, you'll like this. It doesn't sound like the same band, and I really hope they continue on this road on their next LP. If you listen to just a few songs off of this, I strongly recommend either Blessed, I Just Liked Fire, The Owl, or Dead Actors (which sounds strikingly like Slint).

3.0 goodBRAman22 | June 18th 15

Success is post punk with a bit of technicality here and there. There are a few good songs, but as a whole the album is absolutely nothing special.

4.0 excellentJesse Wallace | June 22nd 16

A very nice change of pace. This is some great noisey post-hardcore with some influence from Dead Kennedys, as I hear it.

3.5 greatDeadwing42 | December 29th 15

Some really good tracks and a few that wind up feeling a little too same-y. Love the Slint worship on the last track.

3.0 goodAlex Brown | August 2nd 15

Mid 7 out of 10: I am totally a fan of KEN mode, but I have yet to find an LP from them that I am in love with. This continues with this LP. Good, but nothing super spectacular, in my opinion.

2.5 averagetitanslayer | June 26th 15

Not a fan of noise rock for the most part so this is really disappointing to me after their last album.

3.0 goodJason Carne | June 23rd 15

This band has so much potential but they just never manage land a knockout of an album, maybe next time?

1.5 very poorworships mediocre noise and pe albums and hates everything | June 21st 15

They dropped the ball on this one...

Bump

3.0 goodMadMikeLove | June 18th 15

A bit disappointing, but overall no offensively bad songs. The first and last songs hit the hardest.

3.0 goodification CONTRIBUTOR | June 2nd 15

album art perfectly mirrors my feelings of this album, especially after how amazing Entrench was....

Will be AOTY, and I'm not just saying that because I'm from Winnipeg.
