  7. 8.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    This is pop music with complex narratives, and if the masses are willing to listen, they could be the band that recharges the UK charts with genuinely meaningful music

  12. 8.0 |   The Observer

    As with their previous work, it transcends easy genre-pigeonholing, but imagine a Radiohead you can dance to and you’re getting close

  14. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    They remain a divisive band, but the twists and turns of this album makes it indisputably engrossing

  19. 7.2 |   Pitchfork

    Get to Heaven pivots on the violent last resorts of the disenfranchised, and the false prophets who claim to save them
    Read Review

  20. 7.0 |   NME

    For all its technicality and viscerality, the album never packs the same emotional punch as 2013’s ‘Arc’ and some songs - like the glitchy, overlong ‘Warm Healer’ - never quite seem to find their own centre of gravity
