We currently know 17 reviews for "Why Love Now" by Pissed Jeans. The album received pretty solid reviews among the critics and is one of the better ones this year.
"Why Love Now is the first in a potentially endless stream of politically charged punk rock records this year. However, it’s extremely hard to see any of them trumping this glorious, if uncomfortable, masterpiece."
Drowned In Sound
"With riffs weighted so they're heavy enough to bludgeon, and vocals that feel like they're being torn straight from the larynx, the album is a tour de force of high octane refrains and filth-driven focus."
The Line of Best Fit
"Why Love Now, PJ’s fifth, is a surprisingly tuneful deconstruction of themes as varied as cancer (Waiting on My Horrible Warning), the modern workplace (“singer” Matt Korvette is an insurance adjuster) and male assholery that swings between scary and hilarious."
The Observer (UK)
"Why Love Now truly comes to life when the band uses their punishing sound to explore the absurdity of modern masculinity."
"Why Love Now is reserved in its sonic experimentation. But for a band as sharp and capable as this one, that’s not really a problem. Beneath the acerbic jokes, Korvette is a humane and considerate writer and performer."
"His band’s eardrum-perforating din isn’t for the faint-hearted, but is a lot of fun and delivers some uncomfortable home truths."
"Why Love Now is a brash ballache of an album that will make you hate yourself as much as it makes you hate the world. Rest assured lads, the bar is now slightly higher than it was a week ago."
"Why Love Now may be their second album on Sub Pop, but there has been no cleaning up or pulling punches. Pissed Jeans are as soiled, sordid and scintillating as ever."
"Happily, this follow-up finds them operating at a similarly scintillating capacity, grinding down on the ugliness buried in the mundanity of modern life and crushing it into the wreckage of metal and post-punk."
"Their music has never gone down easier, but their commentary has never hit so uncomfortably hard."
"As a whole, Pissed Jeans have put out the best, harshest, yet most listenable album of their career."
"Why Love Now shows Pissed Jeans' songwriting reaching new peaks of awareness and focus, all the while remaining true to their brand of dissonant punk."
"As a whole, this is a typically unpredictable and manic album. Musically, it couldn’t be accused of being subtle, but it does show a band pushing themselves to see where they can take their sound."
"It's easily the meatiest the band has sounded to date, but it doesn't deviate from the punishing, aural miasma that Pissed Jeans have been stewing in since their 2006 debut."
"The best sounding record in Pissed Jeans' catalog. [Jan - Mar 2017, p.66]"
Under The Radar
"This is modern life sliced up with the precision of a medical scalpel and then force-fed through a high-density filter of piss and vinegar."
Classic Rock Magazine
"While it’s probably a good thing that the rest of record isn’t quite as intense as that [Waiting On My Horrible Warning], the 11 songs that follow remain a deliberately overbearing barrage of droning, snarling and unrelenting noise punk."
