2.5 averageajcollins15 | November 18th 21

I really wanted to come away from this new album floored with what the British post-punk band was doing, bringing it back to their roots and nailing it on the head. That was expedited by the fact that the two lead singles from this album were stellar showings of what makes great post-punk great. But now with the album out and me having the chance to digest it, the fourth album from the five-piece band is a bit flat. There are some good songs on here, and some bad songs on here, but nothing is really standing out for me. This is especially the case with what the landscape is like now in the British post-punk scene with bands like Black Midi, Squid, and Black Country, New Road (and even LICE). It?s even more interesting because the last two tracks see the band kind of trying to reach these newer bands with the use of jazz and black metal, but it feels so tacked on. With all that said, I was never a bit fan of this band, to begin with because all their albums feel a bit like this though. So, take what I say with a grain of salt.

3.8 excellentErwann S. STAFF | November 12th 21

In the end, Crawler convinces the least when it tries to replicate what has already been perfected in the past, proving that this new direction is the right one. The experiments sound just about right, neither too timid nor too radical, and constitute natural expansions of the band's original recipe. Bringing fun back to the centre of its agenda, Crawler is inventive and compelling at its best, failing only in rare places for lack of commitment to being consistently ambitious. And despite these lil missteps, the band manage to come up with their most consistent album yet.
