AllMusic Review by

Recalling the feral energy of anything-goes revivalists like Pussy Galore, the Make-Up, and Brother JT, Old Time Relijun seemed to decry the rest of the indie-rock world circa 2007 as pasty-faced, all too full of itself, and afraid to strip things down to the bone. With CATHARSIS IN CRISIS, the culmination and final installment of their "Lost Light Trilogy"--following LOST LIGHT and 2012--the band careens and swaggers through a set of pounding tribal fist raisers. They toured their faces off in the early '00s and it shows: CATHARSIS IN CRISIS is the rare record that translates live ferocity to recorded grooves without sacrificing an ounce of intensity. Lead-off track "Indestructible Life" may be the best reason of its time to get off the couch. Yowza.
