  1. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    The Brooklynites fizz with undimmed hallucinogenic effervescence on a third album that could credibly pass as some warped relic issuing from a future civilisation

  2. 8.0 |   Q

    The oddball duo of Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez rage in a noise-rock playground, sometimes using instruments handmade in Sanchez's workshop. Amid the racket, Dyer's yearning gives political screeds the intimacy of a lover's spat. Print edition only

  3. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    One of the most inventive and original-sounding artists out there

  4. 8.0 |   Uncut

    BAG's core values remain intact, but it's an exhilarating advance. Print edition only

  5. 8.0 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    A strange and fidgety album that is guaranteed to evade umbrella classification

    There are moments on Scholars where Buke and Gase are clearly still finding their feet in their new electronic landscapes, but the album is an ambitious and adventurous set of music that's every bit as engaged as anything they've ever released

  11. 4.0 |   The Skinny

    While there are some decent enough ideas to be enjoyed on Buke and Gase's latest studio album, it's ultimately a rather flat listen that doesn't challenge anywhere near enough as it should
