    Are these the critics who are awe inspired by bands like Coldplay and Keane? If they think that's musical depth, I'd like to take them to a puddle and invite them to dive in head first.

  1. Resurrect[s] the 1970s white ska world of The Specials, The Jam et al with varying degrees of success.

    Brassbound is a far better played, better written and lyrically grown-up record than its brash, Brit-pop-punk predecessor. [Jul 2005, p.102]
  3. Had the entirety of ‘Brassbound’ been as polished as these final two tracks, the Boys would be closer to the promise they exhibited on their debut. Instead, they’ve produced – and have the frightening candour to admit to – their “second debut”.
