The band strolled in to a world of perfected screech-punk, kicked out the residents, and made their nest by the electrical wiring. Absolute mad lads.

Oh my god. This mixes everything I love about bands like Swans, GY!BE, and Daughters but still remains unlike anything else I've heard. Excellent in every way.

You ever woken up feeling really tired so you get a coffee but it doesn't work so now you're not only tired you're also anxious and you need to shit that's what this album is like.

3.5 greatErwann S. STAFF | September 11th 23

Sprawling dissorock shizzle whose excessism sometimes leads the band nowhere - thankfully these self-indulgent moments don't happen *that* often (mostly on the phat 24 minutes tracks), and the record is surprisingly digestible for its 90mins duration.

their vocalist sounds like Jerry Seinfeld doing free form poetry but the instrumentals really slap in that good wonky way that quality post-hardcore typically does

4.5 superbajcollins15 | September 5th 23

It?s hard to put into words the sonic on-slot one experiences while listening to this sophomore record from Spain. Whether it be the bombastic and noisy no wave passages on the opening track and ?We Think So Ill Of You?. Or maybe it?s the post-rock and experimental nature of the various ten-minute tracks. Or even the barn-burning noise and drone passages that are laced throughout the two 24+ minute tracks. ?The Lamb Of Effigy? is an experimental masterclass of how to use various shades of rock music and minimalism to create a bombastic and sometimes challenging listening experience, that only bands like Swans have been able to put forward. However, that is my one criticism of this record. The amount of Swan's praise going on from the band's massive discography is pretty potent. Whether it be the band's noisy rock outfits early on in their career or their experimental post-rock stuff from their 2010s area, there is a lot of Swans influence. This is perfectly fine and this is an exceptional album, but it can be distracting at times.

earns a place alongside The Seer and Shaking the Habitual in the canon of "holy shit my fucking brain is on fire" albums
