"An individual and welcome addition to the instrumental rock camp. "Patriot" is laden with great hooks and tricky drum patterns. Clever, memorable and original. Most Impressive." Clash
"Sounds like the work of a band who have been honing their sound for a long time. Cougar sound like the real deal. Massively recommended." Kruger
"Soundtrack to swine flu, credit crunches and nuclear disasters. Noone are safe when Cougar is in the prowl." AU
"Cougar explore the rock/dance axis in a similar way to Battles or Health but with more digital aggression." NME
"Cougar sew an impressive tapestry of styles together into a series of distinct landscapes. Cougar might just make you see the world in a more positive light." Rock Sound
"Cool, big riffing post-rock." Mixmag
"It's tempting to tag Cougar as post-rock but that would be to sell them short. Their second album can't quite decide whether to be a kick-ass groove monster, a quasi-classical soundscaper or a glitch/math rock nerd, but is all the better for it." Uncut
"Effectively and brilliantly manages to blend rock and electronic music without forgetting a unique and sparkling hook. A wake up call to the senses." Rock Feed Back
"Cougar standout from the post-rock mire in their ability to add a twist of the unexpected. Well worth a listen." Tasty Fanzine
