"Stream 13 may document one of Excepter's most plainly violent performances, but it also showcases another side, a band approaching a new level of power and communication, at times building stretches of majestic, glimmering ambience, a new realm of exploration for the group. Reaching to the edge of meaning and nihilism, Excepter manage a rare feat: they return." -- Andrew Russeth, The Wood
