Their self-titled debut album from Vice Records is one of the most amazing of the year, taking elements of a very modern mood, mixing them with an almost classic-rock feel and taking off to someplace elegantly galactic, like on the single “Come Out (Come Down, Fade Out, Be Gone),” which makes you want to smash illusions, take off, hook up. – URB

Wonder what Radiohead would have sounded like if they had discovered big, room-filling synthesizers during their U2-worshipping phase? The answer is 120 Days, a Norwegian quartet that creates giant, sweeping, rock epics powered by a thick distillation of guitars, bass, and rumbling analog synths. Rather than evoke new wave, these young rockers sound like late-’70s techno-punks mingling with mid-’70s prog-rockers over a 21st century Pro Tools rig, banging out cell phone-waving anthems for hipsters and nerds alike. – XLR8R

120 Days is an interstellar storm of dance beats, synth riffs, guitar drones and Bono-in-Berlin vocals. – ROLLING STONE

It’s a post-punk, post-rave, post-pre-Armageddon masterpiece of sleazy, chaos-worshipping industrial rock, not all unlike Primal’s brilliant XTRMNTR. Good thing they’re on our side, then. – FILTER
