Songs aren’t constructed out of highbrow concepts; they’re forged out of gut instinct and base emotional response. Starting with the meditative restraint of the album opener, 'Guidance' sets off on a path of metallic savagery, arpeggio tectonics, mercurial anthems, sombre segues, and seismic Americana noir. "the album – the group's sixth – is moody, dense and dynamic, the gripping soundtrack to an un-filmed drama." – Rolling Stone
