UK Release date
US Release date
  1. 10.0 |   A.V. Club

    As complex a journey as Powers has ever taken the listener on, under any guise
    Read Review

  2. 8.6 |   Paste Magazine

    It never veers too hard in one direction or the other, staying within a similar tingling middle ground where the best horror movies and thrill rides reside

  3. 8.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    It might not hit Dumb Flesh’s dancefloor highs but with decent headphones and a windswept night there’s points on here that are damn near-transcendental
    Read Review

  4. 8.1 |   Pitchfork

    World Eater is suitable for casual noise fans who have some curiosity for extreme music and a decent threshold for pain
    Read Review

  5. 8.0 |   God Is In The TV

    A testament to realising that less can be more, that pointed restraint can open up fertile creative avenues

  6. 8.0 |   Beardfood

    The ebb and flow is thrilling
    Read Review

  7. 8.0 |   Tiny Mix Tapes

    If it indeed captures anything, it’s an America being run in the image of Biff Tannen’s dog-eat-dog casino world from Back to the Future, Part II

  8. 8.0 |   The 405

    It’s coherent, exciting, and strong, and it gives you an in-depth idea of how you can articulate experimental soundscapes with rough portions of sound that cause commotion

  9. 8.0 |   DIY

    Like the evil twin of Clarence Clarity that joined a particularly nasty cult
    Read Review

  10. 8.0 |   Q

    If World Eater has an ear for the end-times rave-up. Print edition only

  11. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    It's a radical, adventurous exploration — and celebration — of the relationship between darkness and light
    Read Review

  12. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    World Eater is ferocious and intense, but it's also thrilling and bristling with life – and it’s these contrasts that make it such a blast to listen to
    Read Review

  13. 8.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    ‘World Eater’ is a triumph. The jewel in its crown, though, is the superb ‘Rhesus Negative,’ an onslaught of percussive and vocal cut-ups that takes Boards of Canada’s Telephasic Workshop into a much more aggressive space

  14. 8.0 |   music OMH

    An album that will shake you senseless, eat you up and spit you out. And it’s worth very minute
    Read Review

  15. 8.0 |   Resident Advisor

    If Dumb Flesh was a dance record about the fragility of the body, then World Eater is, perhaps, about the fragility of people. Power's frustration is clear
    Read Review

  16. 7.7 |   Gig Soup

    World Eater is that rare record that oscillates from brutal to ethereal (sometimes over the course of one track) without ever feeling disjointed
    Read Review

  17. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    He finds moments of calm, drift and uplift too, as he spins through his variety show of ideas which don’t quite fit for Fuck Buttons
    Read Review

  18. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    Blanck Mass's World Eater is a humungous, terrifying slab of electronic noise
    Read Review

  19. 7.0 |   Earbuddy

    Dark, robotic, and sinister: Benjamin John Power is back with another head-trip
    Read Review

  20. 6.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    Reflects a landscape filled with violence, anger and darkness
    Read Review

  21. 6.0 |   Crack

    Despite its impressive moments, World Eater seems like an experiment that left the studio too early
    Read Review

  22. 6.0 |   The Independent

    Wreathed in loops and samples, swaddled in stacked vocal sounds, World Eater is former Fuck Button John Power’s response to the turbulence of 2016
    Read Review

  23. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    Brutal noise with frequent sweet spots
