Spin (p.34) - Ranked #28 in Spin's 'The Top 40 Albums Of 2011' -- "[With] rippling one-note dive-bombs, delicate piano motifs clawing through prismatic feedback and witched-out bass rumbles dropping like 808s."The Wire (p.50) - "The album has almost Wagnerian scope and immersive power, and at just over 50 minutes it's well organised as a start-to-finish listen."Uncut (magazine) (p.83) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[H]is primary source is a pipe organ in an Icelandic church, which he processes, filters, deconsecrates, muddies and distorts, and therefore liberates in the course of this album..."Uncut (magazine) (p.32) - Ranked #30 in Uncut's '50 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "[E]ngrossing, gaseous music, with its sacred air compounded by Hecker's main instrument of choice, the pipe organ..."0.2034731

Rolling Stone (p.61) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "DISTORTION has an indelible identity. It rocks, in this case a meaningful, temporary departure. Its unmelded sonic gestalt suits its thematic disquiet."Rolling Stone (p.91) - Ranked #25 in Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums Of 2008 -- "[E]voking old AM-radio tunes remixed by a mad genius."Spin (p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The creeping B-movie love song 'Zombie Boy' benefits from the background noise, and 'Too Drunk to Dream' has fun twisting the Beach Boys' familiar, sunny vibe with squeals and screeches."Entertainment Weekly (p.83) - "[B]oth wintry and lush, buoyant and black-hearted....Shot through with jangling boy-girl harmonies..." -- Grade: A-Uncut (p.84) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "DISTORTION at its best is beguiling and quietly devastating."CMJ - "DISTORTION's Jesus And Mary Chain fixation adds icy muscle to Merritt's downy, sad melodies."Q (Magazine) (p.99) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "With collaborator Shirley Simms splitting vocals with Merritt, there is plenty to enjoy..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "It's faux-naif orch-pop that crashes and thunders. Merritt being Merritt, the work also packs plenty of sardonic wit..."Blender (Magazine) (p.99) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Every instrument here distorts, giving tearjerkers like 'I'll Dream Alone' complementary grit."Harp (magazine) (p.93) - "Merritt takes on the crushingly forlorn balladry of 'Mr. Mistletoe' and the cool aching romanticism of 'Too Drunk To Dream.' Exquisite."Clash (magazine) (p.106) - "Miniature masterpieces such as 'California Girls' and 'Drive On, Driver' exhibit the type of feisty flamboyance in the face of unrequited devotion that will be instantly familiar to all followers of songwriter Stephin Merritt's beautifully crafted melancholia..."The Word (magazine) - "The idea of enveloping everything from guitar to piano to cello in clouds of feedback and fuzz is both unexpected and remarkably convincing."Record Collector (magazine) (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "'Too Drunk To Dream' deploys Stephen Merritt's lugubrious-hilarious baritone to great emotive effect..."0.1166778
