    With its muggy, lo-fi atmosphere, Be Your Own King works best at its most carefree.... [But] The tail end of the record does come to a bit of a standstill.

    Be Your Own King is somewhat hobbled, though, by a flat, dense production from The Do's Dan Levy. [Mar 2013, p.89]

    Most of the time, though, Be Your Own King is so chipper and catchy it comes over like an indie version of Alphabeat.

    At times, all this loose-limbed craziness can become tiresome but like an excitable friend dragging you onto the dancefloor by the sleeve, they make it very a=hard not to join their party. [Apr 2013, p.97]

    At times it can be a bit round-the-campfire twee, but when they’re doing something as cut-yourself-sharp as ‘Wall Paper’, it’s easy to forgive Concrete Knives for the odd moment of artistic bluntness.
