Angrymetalguy says: "Cruel Wordsis isn’t flawless. The mix is just as squashed as the cruel laws ov otherwise wonderful albums dictate, and it does this annoying thing at the 10:18 mark of “Cruel Words” where the album ends. With its trudging stride, staunch avoidance of joy and relative structural predictability, this one may not be for everyone. On the other hand, with its cold emotional grip and its bloody-sleeved honesty, this one may be too much in the best, worst way. However you spin it, Cruel Words is a well of emotion that both giveth to and drowneth listeners, an unsettling testimony to the powers of creative expression and the dark side of the mind."
