    Great lyrics, great rhythm and great spirit. A Certain Trigger is one of those energetic albums you listen to and just gets amazed. And just like GabrielP said there below... there's certainly Pulp and Smiths in it.

    I just don't agree with the reviews of some publications, this album is fun, witty and energetic. The whole aesthetic is spot on and the tone is perfect. Maximo keep up the pace and intrigue throughout.

  1. Most of A Certain Trigger's album tracks sound like singles waiting to be discovered.
  2. A magnificent album where every verse fills you with excitement for the next chorus, where wide-scoping fields of sound work in unison to stage the perfect pop-rock riot and where every meticulously crafted melody comes back to haunt you when you least expect it.
  3. A Certain Trigger is a strong release from its opener on, though it has noticeable shifts in momentum, with a second, rousing tour de force in its closing tracks.
