“…there are enough tortured screams and catastrophic riffs strewn about this LP’s 38 minutes to carry fans another three years, until the boys conceive their next multicolored, limited-edition musical apocalypse.” – Spin (8/10)

“Final question, does Converge bring something new to the table? Oh yes my friends, they do.” – Crave Online (8.5/10)

“Labels like “punk,” “hardcore,” or “metal” simply don’t work anymore. This is pure, unadulterated energy, seething catharsis taken out on throats, fingers, fretboards and drum heads by a band going on 22 years, and showing no signs of weakness or irrelevancy.” – Prefix Magazine (8.5 /10)

A.V Club ( B+)

“With the release of All We Love We Leave Behind, Converge has once again displayed its uncanny ability to create an album as skull-cleaving as it is beautiful.” – Consequence Of Sound
