“No one working in this genre does [it] better. Godspeed’s music is undergirded by its musicians’ radical leftist politics and that means there’s hope rather than despair at its heart—a belief that collective struggle against our overlords is a battle worth fighting instead of a foregone conclusion to surrender to. It’s this spirit that animates Luciferian Towers, their impeccably composed, most melodic and powerfully positive-sounding album to date.”
“Godspeed has taken measured steps closer to beauty. It’s not a record of mourning, as much of the collective’s music has been described. Instead, it feels more like a call to action and creation. The world is ruined — but all of us are still here. It’s not a revolutionary message for Godspeed, which has been delivering variations of this for almost 20 years. But it still sounds like a revolution.”
LA Times
“Stands as one of the best albums of the year. ‘Bosses Hang’ is the best thing Godspeed has written in years. Every note speaks for itself. The band’s sonic apocalypticism has overtones of hope. Luciferian Towers is excellent.”
Pretty Much Amazing (A-)
