The Sunday Times “articulate and considered lyrics, softly but precisely intoned, over unexpectedly experimental textures and deconstructed skinny guitar licks, with folksy banjo flourishes and gently lowing strings.”
R2 “Bleak, beautiful and burning with a slow sadness, ‘Against Entitlement’ is a demanding listen, but one which rewards perseverance in spades.”
God Is In The TV “A collection of great tunes which if they had come from a Pitchfork-approved band would probably be rightly lauded. There’s a measured combination of spritely country tinged indie reminiscent of The Decemberists and wistful string arrangements which sound like a more subdued Arcade Fire. This album cements Lazarus Clamp’s position as one of the UK’s most criminally underrated bands.”
Drowned in Sound as ‘wonkily elaborate’
Manchester Music “The album has a bass sound the size of an unpainted Forth Bridge and guitars come across with broken glass jangles. Smashing.”
BEARDED“A blend of Yo La Tengo, The Evens and fIREHOSE, Lazarus Clamp don’t sit easily in the contemporary scene. At one minute [it] sounds a little alt. country before straying back towards the band’s post-hardcore roots. Sulky, brooding and utterly brilliant.”
The Big Issue“Rather wonderful.”
The Guardian“Delicate and subtle dynamics.”
Popnews (France) “Slint-perfused folk songs sung by Marianne Faithful.”
City Lights magazine “The U.K.’s answer to Sparklehorse – 10 out of 10”
Record Collector “A fine start, with a fleet of guitars building gradually to form a beautiful backdrop. Shades of REM’s more fractured side emerge as the vocals shape the tortured chorus. Genuinely powerful stuff… Compelling.” (single of the month, Feb 2000)
