    Songwriting this good doesn't come along often.

    Whatever the case, those years out of the spotlight have served TPF well: every second of Buffalo is wrought and layered with artisan care, and if ever you were looking for a record to banish the winter, this could be it.

    This album then is in no way spectacular or ostentatious, but partly because of this there are almost no moments at which it falls flat; and if anything marks out an LP as being not just good, but very good, as well as stepping it away from being a mere collection of songs, it's an excellently crafted and cohesive consistency.

    Until they're discovered by a big primetime television programme--and that day will surely come--those who know can rest assured that Buffalo is another strong entry in their impressive catalogue.

    They've fleshed out the colourful sketches that make up the bulk of their last album. [Feb 2011, p.96]

    The music is let down by clunky lyrics. [Feb 2011]
  7. Each to their own. For me, there's nothing here not to like, but even less to love.
