5.0 out of 5 stars Do not trust Pitchfork's review and try this, it's pure gold!!!, 8 July 2011
By 
This review is from: Gloss Drop (Audio CD)
This is a fantastic follow up to Mirrored. It's different in many ways, but for somebody that has only listened to the debut or the EPs this would still be instantly recognisable as Battles, as many of the key structural elements are still there, including of course John Stanier's marvelous drumming. I cannot comment on Braxton's departure since it is impossible to tell what would have been different with him on it, but this work is certainly on a par with Mirrored if not slightly better.

Talking in terms of Pitchfork's scale, I'd say this is a solid 9 (so ignore their very stupid review) and Bon Iver's follow up is about a 6 max (idem), just to put my taste into some perspective. In any case, try before you buy and watch them live if you have the chance.
