Spin (p.87) - "In opener, 'Pray or Rain,' TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe sings of failing systems over a rolling-thunder piano groove."
Entertainment Weekly (p.105) - "Haunting vocals by TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe and Mazzy Star's Hope Sandoval calm the jitters here..." -- Grade: B-
Uncut - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's the roll-call of weatherbeaten indie stars who appear on HELIGOLAND that provides a lot of the appeal here....The sound of a group at the very height of their power, flexing their ample muscle..."
Alternative Press (p.96) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "'Psyche' arcs gorgeously from codeine-laced space-pop to retro-tinted tropicalia."
CMJ - "[There is] enough dark, blossoming beauty in HELIGOLAND's 53 minutes to make it an admirable endeavor by a group that has endured nearly two decades in music."
Billboard (p.32) - "Massive Attack's arsenal has expanded and the resulting onslaught is nothing short of brilliant."
Paste (magazine) (p.61) - "Less a depiction of the surrounding apocalypse, HELIGOLAND is more a reflection of the anxieties within."
Clash (Magazine) - "Sounding a lot like Martina Topley-Bird, it's actually Hope Sandoval that brings a similarly languid, feminine guile to 'Paradise Circus.'"
