    not as original as the debut.. somthing got lost in the shoegaze sense of the band... but not everything has to be original to be good. if the songs are strong enough and the production is solid. your on the right track

  1. Baby 81 still contains a decent collection of songs, it’s just that not only do most of them not stand out from the band’s previous work, they also pale in comparison. [#17, p.82]

    BRMC seem invincible; or back to their searing best, at any rate. [May 2007, p.87]
  3. The songwriting isn’t BRMC’s most memorable, but Baby 81’s noise-roots fumes are pretty thick.
