What people are saying about Low’s Ones and Sixes: "It's one thing for Low to have made a rewarding career of spare, dramatic, glacially paced music...It's another to make those ingredients sound so incredibly dynamic; to spend 20-plus years making a dozen albums that eachfeel distinct, and that each introduce new ideas, twists and ways to wring drama out of the space between notes…Throughout Ones and Sixes, the Minnesota trio somehow gives weight to airiness as comfort and discord orbit each other like a binary star. But every time the portent threatens to become overbearing — just as the mix of prettiness and heaviness tips a little too far out of alignment — Low punctures it with a burst of cleansing aggression or some pristine, exquisite surprise. Anything to keep us off balance.” [“First Listen”] - NPR Music
"One of the most impressive albums of their career" [4/5] – MOJO
“It’s anothersubtly heart-rending effort from a band that remains one of the very finest in the world. If you needed a reminder of why Low are an institution then this is it.” [8/10] - Drowned In Sound
“The band's strengths are here in abundance, but they are reimagined, twisted into new shapes and given a visceral intensity that is utterly irresistible.” [9/10] - CLASH
“...Striking a balance between their majestic, slow-moving melancholy and harsher experimental noise.” [4/5] - The Guardian
"Ones And Sixes finds them producing some of their best work in years" - The Quietus
