  2. 8.0 |   Mojo

    The relentless Autobahn glide of early-ish Kraftwerk appears tp have overtaken Neu! in Gane's affections. Print edition only

  3. 8.0 |   The Quietus

    The canny sequencing of the material knows that the downward journey from the top of the peak is best served by cerebral moments and wide-eyed consideration. An immersive journey, to be sure, it’s one worth taking the time out for to experience in a single sitting

  4. 8.0 |   All Music

    As Cavern of Anti-Matter embarks on a deep space voyage with the album's suite-like final third that culminates with the lovely "Phantom Melodies," they prove their music has an irresistible momentum, no matter how ambitious it gets

  5. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    With the absence of any human voices on the record, too, it’s tempting to wonder what Sadier might’ve brought to proceedings, especially as an emptiness frequently opens up in ‘Hormone Lemonade’ leaving it feeling more machine-tooled than man-made

  10. 7.0 |   Uncut

    There's no straining to distance themselves from their former band. Print edition only

  11. 6.0 |   Exclaim

    On Hormone Lemonade, Cavern of Anti-Matter have created an inventive piece of art that could have benefited from a bit of self-editing and a some of that old style vision

  12. 6.0 |   Q

  13. 6.0 |   Record Collector
