Networking in Purgatory is the third album by Australian folk-rock band Ned Collette + Wirewalker, released in 2014. Writing in The Quietus, reviewer Kate Hennessy praised the album as "very good, even exceptional". She described Collette's voice as "sibilant, astringent and at times vaguely waspish ... a voice that alchemises its flaws into powerful strengths, sitting neither above nor below the mix but slicing through it in both directions, reminiscent of the Brians (Eno and Ferry) and the Davids (Byrne and Bowie)". She noted of its lyrics that Collette's "bitterness runs cold and constant even beneath songs that, sonically, express a kind of genial largesse, a contradiction that is this record's most brilliant aspect". The Sydney Morning Herald described it as "a warm, lush record burst

The Sydney Morning Herald described it as "a warm, lush record bursting (quietly) with a clutch of songs that dip and dive like springtime swallows, as intricate as they are robust ... It's a considered album, one for headphones with time on one's hands, and it rewards handsomely." (en)
