“At no point does Viet Cong ease up on the pressure; this is its mourning period, as the massive production culminates in a furious bonfire of rage and release that’s stunning in its scope. The year is too early to call, but if more records match Viet Cong’s restless moods, there may not be much left of us come December.” – NPR Music’s “First Listen”
