Press Clippings for Carnival of Souls

Continued...

"Garage-rock brutalists - Like wild-eyed prophets who see more deeply into what's really going on than you do, they bracingly swat aside life's charade with blistering irony, mad whimsy and raging conviction." Q Magazine, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
-
"A risk taking, empathetic group mind at work." The Wire
-
"With so much music codified into genres and artists reluctant to alienate an audience, Pere Ubu remain refreshingly abrasive, marginal and theatrically challenging." Graham Reid, The New Zealand Herald
-
"Deliciously hearty, confrontational sound." Edwin Hofman, Written in Music (NL)
-
"After four decades quite how any act can continue to make challenging and enthralling music to the degree shown on 'Carnival of Souls' is a mystery." The Digital Fix
-
"A thrilling album that raises expectations for the trilogy's final installment to the skies." Heather Phares, AllMusic
-
"Stinging and abrasive, full-bodied rock and nutritious - Songs that hit the center of the mind - Enveloping." Libero (Italy)
-
"Led by one of rock's few truly inimitable voices, David Thomas and Pere Ubu add to an already impressive discography with Carnival of Souls. Still restless and bursting with ideas." The Vinyl District
-
"All players are connected here, the instrumentation serving as part of the conversation throughout the whole of the record. A carnivalesque parade of familiar reference points woven into a pastiche of otherworldly displacement." Ed Whitelock, Pop Matters
