    An IMAX band in an iPad age, it's there that they'll prosper. [Oct 2012, p.111]

    Their third album is a frothfest of colour and light, with a joyous disregard for genre boundaries, but almost zilch in the way of introspection.

    Contact is a collection of catchy pop tunes and an eclectic one at that.

    A little bit of cheese is a small price to pay for an album this likeable, accomplished and charmingly unfussed about being cool.

    Contact is certainly a showcase for all the things the Noisettes can do well, but more focus would help define them as eclectic popsters instead of fickle ones.

    Shingai Shoniwa's vocals supply enough personality to elevate them above standard winebar fare.

    Contact is a disappointment because it's packed with untapped potential, which never seems to be fully realised.
