"Lucky for us, there's no one else like them and on Present Tense, their success has allowed Wild Beasts to be even more like themselves." — Pitchfork

"It's a gorgeous record, particularly for its vocals; Thorpe's mannered falsetto and Fleming's strong, clear depths are both unusual for the indie-rock soundscape, and they've never been used more effectively, together and apart, than they are here.” — Interview

"...on this year's Present Tense, Wild Beasts have matured by exercising increasing sonic restraint. Now they allow the melodies, unexpected rhythms, nimble licks and the increasingly prevalent synths, the space to sigh and swell." — Noisey

"Present Tense marks a further refinement and features a band continuing to keep itself restless and uncomfortable." — Paste

"...the way Wild Beasts can't seem to play a bum note or place a single syllable in the wrong verse, makes Present Tense one of the most quietly exhilarating albums in recent memory, and all the more so for using its evocative power to unsettle and seduce in equal measure." — PopMatters

"Present Tense is their most refined work to date." — Consequence of Sound
