  1. 10.0 |   The Skinny

    Blisters with the heat of the pair’s stripped-back emotions; a burn made all the more torrid as they are wedded with the sentiments the album coaxes from its listeners

  2. 8.3 |   Consequence Of Sound

    The duo's sophomore album turns observation into an art form
    Read Review

  3. 8.3 |   Pitchfork

    Girlpool's sound gets bigger on their sophomore LP, but Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad’s voices still sit center stage in all their vulnerable glory
    Read Review

  4. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Music is cathartic for Girlpool, allowing them to share their honest expressions while simultaneously allowing the listener to impose their own perceptions
    Read Review

  5. 8.0 |   God Is In The TV

    At once soft and fragile, bitter and abrasive, Powerplant is like eating a bag of sherbet lemons

  6. 8.0 |   The Music

    Undoubtedly Girlpool’s best release yet

  7. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    Highlights? Start from the beginning and enjoy it all

  8. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    Blink-and-you'll-miss-em grunge lullabies
    Read Review

  9. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    It's singular, creative work with pure intent; that makes Girlpool an important band, and it makes Powerplant an authentic, beautiful, effective record

  10. 7.5 |   Earbuddy

    Even with the added percussive firepower, Girlpool’s songs never fail to connect with their listeners on a personal level
    Read Review

  11. 7.5 |   Under The Radar

    Girlpool base their songwriting around tenderness, vulnerability, and a complete disinterest in pretending not to embrace those things, and Powerplant finds them at their most transparent

  12. 7.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    Once you pierce the surface, something weirder and more otherworldly awaits
    Read Review

  13. 7.0 |   All Music

    Their music could so easily have ended up sounding bratty, but it's very much to their credit that their humanity shines through their sensitively wrought vignettes
    Read Review

  14. 7.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    ‘Powerplant’’s real success is in its ambition to extend the duo’s core appeal
    Read Review

  15. 6.9 |   Gig Soup

    'Powerplant' signifies a slight step back from 'Before the World Was Big' for Girlpool. By no means is it a "slump," but it is far from a breakout release
    Read Review

  16. 6.7 |   A.V. Club

    Buzzy duo Girlpool does the unthinkable by adding the most common instrument in rock
    Read Review

  17. 6.5 |   The 405

    Powerplant is not the strongest record they'll release, but neither, you'd imagine, will it be their last. There's more than enough here to suggest that we may still be in the earlier days of a long and beautiful friendship

  18. 6.0 |   DIY

    Just as affecting and crushing as its predecessor
    Read Review

  19. 6.0 |   Crack

    Lyrically, Girlpool explore intimate topics like toxic relationships, detachment and bad habits, and there’s a compelling darkness to be found across Powerplant
