Ampere playing machinegun skramz and destroying everything whats new

4.0 excellentTightropeMTL | June 8th 11

Ampere is back with a vengeance. 'Like Shadows' is deceptively layered and complex
underneath the unrelenting aural assault. Fast but not brutal, melodic but dissonant. Ugly &
beautiful, this is their finest work to date. Don't blink.

Would be much better live.

1.5 very poormkamrass | July 8th 13

This music is supposed to be raw/heavy and I know that, but it just sounded like emotionless noise. There were very few parts on this album that were interesting, the rest of it was down in the gutters as boring and annoying to say at the least.

1.0 awfulAaron LaClair | April 17th 13

This has the musical integrity of a toddler banging on pots and pans. I realize this is intended to be chaotic and sloppy, but I could pick up 4 strangers walking in front of house on their way to get crack and trump this tenfold. Fucking horrible

5.0 classictrolliefingers | June 22nd 11

i thought punx generally got lamer as they got older? i was eleven when they formed, i'm twenty now, and i'm pretty sure they were all older than i am now back in 2002. this record is their best yet, maybe best of the genre. uhh...

4.5 superbjorge22s | June 21st 11

So here we are, the Massachusetts natives with another release. "Like Shadows" its a masterpiece as revolutionary and groundbreaking as Radiohead's Kid A, perhaps even better. To have an album better than Kid A, is theorically impossible, considering Pitchfork Media gave it a legendary 10.0, so there's no space to grow because there isn't a rating as perfect as that one.

In my professional opinion Ampere has pulled an album of about 10.7, yeah i know, that's a first. But rules and history is to be rewritten, we are right now in a crucial time in indie music history, in hipster subculture history and overall we have the pleasure of listening one of the greatest albums of the decade.

Beautiful yet Ugly, Infinite yet 47 minutes, Chaotic yet Familiar, Death Brutal Metal yet Childish, Masculine-Hyper-Macho music yet Femenine and delicate.

Think about it.

fantastic. just when i had given up hope

4.0 excellentJohn weathered old reviewer Hanson STAFF | June 6th 11

The best emo album of the short year so far, but after being spoiled for years with bands who played a longer, more satisfying style of music, is Ampere as impactful as they once were? Eh, still gonna rule live.

4.0 excellentAlex Silveri EMERITUS | June 4th 11

Holy shit. The last album that had me on the edge of my seat like this was something out of pg.99's discography, and even then this is a ride like no other. Short, fast, brutal and passionate - everything Ampere ever had in them, distilled into the best 13 minutes of the year.
