  1. 10.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    With War Music, Refused have delivered a rousing call to arms, and perhaps a call to their punk-rock peers to join the fight

  2. 8.0 |   All Music

    It speaks to a world still wrestling with problems that have divided society for centuries, and Refused aren't rehashing old arguments so much as they're launching one more campaign in a war they cannot bear to surrender

  3. 8.0 |   DIY

    An invigorating listen that flirts with the eclecticism of their 1998 album

  4. 8.0 |   Kerrang!

    While the music may not be as much of a shock as it once might have been, the revolution still has a kick-ass soundtrack

  8. 7.0 |   The Music

    The themes of War Music are the same we've come to expect from the band, with Dennis Lyxzen howling and screaming about protest, struggle, revolution and inequality

  9. 7.0 |   Northern Transmission

    Battled hardened but with a few flesh wounds ‘War Music’ is valiant solider amongst the ranks of Refused’s artillery

  10. 4.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Refused are right when they call for more action and fewer words, but we also need a vision of something new rather than the politics of the 1960s
