8 out of 10 - "It may be the most fun you can have with a pair of speakers this year… a hefty, proper album, boasting depth and hooks in abundance" - Drowned In Sound

8 out of 10 - "An undeniable and up-to-the-minute rush…. in a couple of decades, when you're looking for an instant hit of what electronic pop felt like in 2011, you'll be able to throw on Glass Swords and get a dose of that feeling in its purest form." - Pitchfork

4 out of 5 - "Rustie constantly chases the next thrill, with rhythmic switch-ups and vivid synths firing in all directions as the album twists, turns and veers off at tangents." - The Guardian

9 out of 10 - "It's bombastic, it's vibrant, it's neon...and it's also stunningly good." - XLR8R

4 out of 5 - "Glass Swords is a place where pleasure is the only constant." - Resident Advisor

"A neck-breaking beast that sets a new benchmark for electronic music. We’d even go as far to call it a modern masterpiece... plug it into your ears as soon as humanly possible and let the young Scot’s seemingly infinite musical imagination dance through your mind." - Dazed & Confused

"This is the most exciting record of the year. Vicious, gorgeous, stunning and UNF**KINGBELIEVEABLE" - Notion Magazine
