“The group’s final album ranks with their best” 4 stars – Mojo
“….recalls the art-rock of 4AD acts such as Pale Saints…There’s also Go-Betweens-style melancholy…intricate guitar lines recall Television’s…”  8/10 – Uncut
“Smooth, finely crafted and very songwriterly affair (with echoes of Talk Talk, The Auteurs and Roy Harper)”The Wire
“Closure is undoubtedly a reliably contrarian, brutally honest and uncompromisingly human album for a great band to – at least try – calling it quits on.” – Delusions Of Adequacy
“…as fitting endings go, it’s absolutely the kittens’ whiskers.” – Terrascope
“These masters of dark wave have certainly left an indelible mark”- 4 stars – Songwriting Magazine
“Their final album finds them in rude artistic health. If you want to know what you’ve missed, Closure provides an excellent hint.” Shindig!
