When they recorded Leucocyte, of course, they had no idea this would their legacy record. But it does seem fair to imagine that Svensson had every intention of continuing to push E.S.T. toward the edges of its appeal rather than back to the center. […]

Leucocyte is far from a perfect albumand that’s why it’s so heartbreakingly good. It’s unsure in partsand occasionally too wilfully rough. But it’s a pointer to a future that’s been cruelly denied us. […]

Leucocyte may well be the final album by E.S.T., but it’s an amazing way to go out. This recording offers more questions than it does answers initially, but gives up the latter as a sad but revelatory pay-off when one hears just what is accomplished here. […]
