Deer Tick take their indie-rock round the full-length block for a fifth time on Negativity. As sure as night follows day, indie-rock bands will eventually end up sounding like Neil Young. Or so the saying goes. Vanessa Carlton turns up on a track to ram it tearfully home. On CD and double LP from Partisan.
7/10 Jack Customer review, 8th March 2018
So I'll just say that this album while a bit directionless, like their last, shows serious improvement in the song writing department. The band is clearly still in a state of transition; John handing over more control to other members. Dream's in the Ditch is a nice song and blends well with John's songs. However, while I enjoyed Thyme, it doesn't mesh at all. I do like the drummer's warbly voice though. I liked every track offered here. Good to see the band taking big strides musically following the last album.
