  2. 8.5 |   Pitchfork

    This is very much an album's album - it sounds best as a piece, where you can get lost in its heady expanse

  3. 8.5 |   FasterLouder

    Obvious influences like Pink Floyd, Cream are heard throughout Innerspeaker but there are nods to more contemporary bands like Tortoise, High Llamas and Flaming Lips

  13. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Innerspeaker won't rewrite the history books or reinvent the wheel, but at the same time it serves its purpose as a shining example of the fact that having a nostalgic outlook needn't necessarily be deemed a negative course of action
