King Krule – Man Alive!

Categories: ,


Sam Moore of NME wrote that the album “is lifted by Marshall’s knack for hazy social observations and poetic metropolitan storytelling”, deeming it more accessible than The Ooz due to its condensed length and “more optimistic worldview”.Niall Doherty of Q likewise found the sound of Man Alive! to be “more welcoming… not quite as warped as it once was”, while adding that Marshall “sounds at peace here, and back to his best”. Wilf Skinner of Clash praised the album as “an absorbing consolidation of Marshall’s inimitable sound”. “Holding to Marshall’s wavelength requires a little more investment than the dingy music asks for, but that’s not to say his shadowland of the heart lacks nuance,” wrote Pitchfork critic Jazz Monroe, who was struck by “Marshall’s intensity with words, the way he threads and knots them like jute rope to hoist himself out of psychic craters”. AllMusic editor Andy Kellman highlighted Ignacio Salvadores’ musical contributions: “They add necessary color to Marshall’s gray vision, peculiar and riveting as it is on its own”. Marshall “has a rep for drawing on punk and hip-hop, but mostly comes up with Nick Cave dark tones”. Mint.
