4.0 excellentReAnimator | January 2nd 14

Great record full of grindy, zero-fat metalcore. "Black Den" and "One Constant Volume"
showcase some surprising but welcome bluesiness in their riffs and groove before the album
stops dead for "Cables Hum Overhead." Vaguely industrial and highly repetitive, it would
benefit from swapping places with "Dim Light District," which would maintain the build-up of
"Black Den" and enhance the pay-off in "Citizen," one of the record's most balls-out tracks.
Despite that one issue, "Left in Kowloon" is vicious, no-frills shit, worth the 26 minutes
it takes to play it through.

4.0 excellentSoundoffs are my business... and business is good! | January 13th 15

Left in Kowloon is like a chainsaw being operated by three angels who have just recently sinned. The production quality of the album is crisp, yet quite robust even for a recording that only clocks in at 26 minutes. Premonitions of War's form of metalcore is self-explanatory, brutal instrumentation that's never afraid to explore substantially different ground, with "Black Den" and "Cables Hum Overhead" - both tracks fitting somewhere in the 5-minute mark - clearly attesting to bits and pieces of this record's variety.
