'Elwan' Reviews

We currently know 10 reviews for "Elwan" by Tinariwen. The album received pretty solid reviews among the critics and is one of the better ones this year.

"Elwan (Elephants), perhaps their most powerful album since Amassakoul, confronts their situation head-on, in songs musing on the values of ancestry, unity and fellowship, driven by the infectiously hypnotic cyclical guitar grooves that wind like creepers around their poetic imagery."

100 % The Independent (UK)
"If ever a record sounded like a herd of elephants, this is it."

100 % Record Collector
"Elwan is pure rock n’ roll. There is an undeniable swagger and an unfettered attitude of resistance here; no pretension or theater."

90 % The Line of Best Fit
"While Elwan may not herald any grand stylistic breakthrough, it does manage to synthesize some of the group’s most recent experiments in a way that helps distinguish it within their overall catalog."

82 % Pitchfork
"Higher-end production values and a handful of famous rock guests have little impact upon their fundamental sound, which is a swirl of unfurling guitar lines, massed voices, and clip-clopping percussion. Elwan is not a soundtrack for defeat, but perseverance."

80 % Dusted Magazine
"Whilst they dream of a home that can no longer be found, there is some comfort to be found here in the new family they are building around them with the power of their music."

80 % Drowned In Sound
"Tinariwen once again deliver a vital and engaging album."

80 % AllMusic
"By making the geographically distant feel welcomingly familiar, Tinariwen have made Elwan a can't-miss release for curious audiences from all corners of the globe."

80 % Exclaim
"Tinariwen’s call-and-response vocals roll inexorably, entrancingly along. They are still the champions of the genre they created."

80 % The Observer (UK)
"Their last studio record saw them in upbeat, energetic form, and whilst that playfulness is still present at times on Elwan, there is a conscious grounding too this time around."
