Cameron McAllister reviews Low’s Double Negative for Christ and Pop Culture:
[I]f there’s one image that can encapsulate this arresting album, it’s the snow-strewn ruins of an ancient church. By turns haunting, beautiful, and sad, it’s a place that hints at a hidden wholeness, especially at moments when the sun shines through the broken stained glass windows, or when the shadow of an old cross falls across the icy floor. If you stand absolutely still, the wind howling through the sanctuary might even sound like a choir.
Double Negative is easily one of my favorite albums of 2018 (read my review), and one of my favorite Low albums to date — which, given their considerable discography, is saying something.
