  2. 7.5 |   The 405

    Lookout Low provides 10 outstanding tracks, each one making clearly apparent the effort put into creating this album was not in vain. This album is certainly going to be tough to beat

  3. 7.0 |   All Music

    Strong hooks abound on a true collaborative effort that officially passes the mantle to trad rock

  4. 7.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    The album as a whole has to be Twin Peaks’ most diverse, musically explorative and mature album yet, leaving fans with curiosity and excitement about where the band will go from here

  5. 7.0 |   Clash

    It’s a slow burner - a passable Twin Peaks album that could, with time, become a great Twin Peaks album, but as of now, we haven’t quite gotten there yet

  6. 6.5 |   Under The Radar

    It's an album that keeps it pretty simple, staves off the sadness with a hearty riff or two and delivers old-fashioned fun by the ferry-load

  7. 6.5 |   Paste Magazine

    Lookout Low is 60% run-of-the-mill jamming and 40% pure, scuzzy originality, but it rarely sparkles.

  8. 6.5 |   Northern Transmission

    ‘Lookout Low’ is a pleasant enough, serviceable record – it won’t set your pulse racing, nor will it pull at your heartstrings. It’s like a Rich Tea biscuit; nice, dependable but not all that exciting

  9. 6.0 |   Q

    OHMME add depth to the harmonies on seven of the 10 songs and the overall sense is of five people as excited by playing together as they were at their first rehearsal nine years ago. Print edition only

  10. 5.9 |   Pitchfork

    Chicago’s local heroes grow up a little on their fourth album and lose some of their live-wire charm in the process
