“What is also apparent on this third release is not only the sheer creativity of the group, but also its stone cold knack for writing songs designed to permanently embed in the gray matter…There is just something about the band’s songwriting approach; it seems so darn natural and effortless. On “The Oracle” nothing ever sounds forced, formulaic, or identifiable as anyone but ALL ELSE FAILS. Don’t let this one slip past your radar. “ – Blabbermouth.net
“It would not surprise me in the slightest if you heard this group grace the airwaves from the obscure darkly lit, pubs of Gothenburg to the soundboards of our own local modern rock stations. It seems more than fortunate that these Alberta natives named their album The Oracle because these local talents have clearly seen the future.” – Edmonton Journal
“Obsidian Walls” is a colossal song” – Planet Mosh
“”The Oracle” is a highly addictive journey that captures the listener from start to finish.” – SpazioRock.it (Italy)
“When it came down to the track list at hand, I can point a few starlets that mesmerized me. I recommend on “This World In Flames”, both electric and acoustic, bone crushing “Rebirth” and “Obsidian Walls”, “Fallen” was a great treat even though it was lyrically heavy, and I even found the last parody “Robots!!! KOLTG” as cool. In addition to the names of the hits, I urge to take a deep listen to the rest while trying to notice the strong connection between the musical diversities and the strong lyrical sense. ALL ELSE FAILS did more than a fine job on those creations.” – Metal-Temple.com
