  1. It's far from bad, but if you're still waiting for a Clinic record as great as the utterly seminal Internal Wrangler, keep waiting, and probably don't hold your breath.
  2. Bubblegum may be the sound of growth, but its progress is directed in a strangely traditional direction for a band formerly disinterested in such ordinariness.
  3. Uncut

    So aesthetically perfect was the formula that Clinic displayed on their earliest singles, an acidic blend of The Velvet Underground, '60s garage and The Monks delivered with frenetic intensity, that subsequent attempts to branch out have felt strangely limited. Bubblegum, however, succeeds quite neatly in making some distance. [Nov 2010, p.83]

    If someone hired Clinic to play a prom, Bubblegum would be the result. [Fall 2010, p. 58]

    Clinic have performed a remarkable metamorphosis for the melodic, dreamlike Bubblegum. [Nov. 2010, p. 106]
