    This is the band's darkest material yet. Opener, The Supremacy of Pure Artistic Feeling is an instant statement of the band's simultaneous deviousness and gorgeousness, which is a feeling that never really lets up over its 40 minutes until the seemingly krautrock-influenced The Right Kind of Adult. Come join the family.

    This is a brilliant, understated, wonderfully crafted record from a band who it feels have been building up to this moment their entire careers.

    This collective continuously defies the status quo and Have You Considered Punk Music is another successful representative of their never-ending quest.

    Have You Considered Punk Music deconstructs punk music so thoroughly that it seems like something else again; it sounds more like the abstracted post-punk of the early aughts band Wilderness than anything you’d hear right now.

    Once again, Self Defense Family have created a work that reveals itself entirely on its own terms, and though Have You Considered Punk Music is often evasive, it still manages to draw in the listener, and it's an experience that's well worth your time.

    Have You Considered Punk Music feels like a missed opportunity to drip the verbal shields and let people all the way in. [30 Jun 2018, p.55]

    It's a well-crafted album. The entire album sounds wonderfully good. However, it is not something that you remember to listen in the future.It's a well-crafted album. The entire album sounds wonderfully good. However, it is not something that you remember to listen in the future. It's more like a one-listen thing. Expand
