"Long awaited third album from the much-loved Canadian slowcore outfit, three years on from the Missionless Days longplayer that was released alongside their first UK/Ireland tour as main support to Godspeed You! Black Emperor. The time between then and now has seen many line-up changes, with drummer Mike Sheridan moving on and, more recently, multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Gara being recruited by band-of-the-moment Arcade Fire as drummer/guitarist -- but not before this album was recorded. Attic Salt displays a maturity that makes it a distant relative from their astonishing F**k Fight Fail and Missionless Days albums. While still predominantly downbeat, the band introduces a subtle growl to a few upbeat numbers. The hushed, affecting, emotive vocals of Samir Khan remain a constant though, and his delivery accentuates the strength of their songwriting, which undoubtedly hits new heights on this album."
