As if releasing what was described by many as the album of the year with UNTITLED (Black Is), SAULT decided to release another album three months later which remarkably was again declared as an album of the year contender. In comparison to ‘Black Is’ the acclaim for this record was a lot more urgent with major publications expressing their satisfaction almost immediately. SAULT have managed to garner growing admiration and approval with each album, where much of the plaudits have referenced how a relatively unknown band have managed to keep up a pace of four albums in less than eighteen months, without once missing a step. ‘Pitchfork’, ‘Variety’, ‘The Guardian’ and ‘Clashmusic’ have been effusive in their praise of their most recent body of work especially as they’ve managed to do it without the ‘traditional methods’ of releasing music. UNTITLED (Rise) by SAULT is without doubt one of the year’s best albums, a real shot in the arm of quality for the British music industry.
