"A Hermitage is an wrathful record, billowing with a fierce anger for South Korea’s younger generation which, accordingly to Ilwoo Lee, faces a crisis of isolation (“we have one of the world’s highest suicide rates”) and suspicion of the conservative forces which has led South Korea to be one of fastest growing economic super-powers. This anger is prevalent from the outset of A Hermitage, "Wardrobe" thrashes with furious energy, metal guitar motifs intertwine with the piercing screech of Bomi Kim’s haegum." - Line of Best Fit
"Music this rousing and beautiful, rising and subsiding in epic fashion, will doubtless trigger a flood of intense or even apocalyptic images. Yet Jambinai also represent a positive force, resisting the old ways and reinventing the future."
"ew if any of Jambinai’s compatriots have mined this sort of territory before and this third LP is initially a bracing experience. Opener ‘Wardrobe’ wastes no time in stomping all over the listener with a phalanx of guitars, punishing drums and guttural wails before morphing into what sounds like a horror film climax at a graveyard. There are tranquil moments on the record too, though: ‘The Mountain’ and ‘For Everything That You Lost’ see guitar theatrics largely take a back seat to meditative keys and delicate Korean instrumentation." - Lound and Quiet
