    Cornershop & the Double O Groove Of is going to very difficult to knock out of this reviewer's top ten of 2011. Bloody brilliant!

    It fuses disparate cultures with such joyous irreverence that, for 40 inspirational minutes, entire notions of national borders and racial divides cease to exist. [Apr 2011, p.77]

    Cornershop's Midlands-Asian mainspring, looks back to the homeland with an album joyously sung all in Punjabi. [Apr 2011, p.100]

    Whether this latest release is merely another development or a sign of things to come, it is their most beguiling collection of songs for a number of years, a labour of love, and a record that that deserves more exposure than it's probably going to get.

    The album works best when the trio downshift to embrace Kaur's vocals and rhythmical sitar twangs. [Mar 2011, p.61]

    Once a mere band, Cornershop here reimagines itself, brilliantly, as a franchise.

    Minus the mock-heroic guitars, frontman Tjinder Singh's globalist critiques lose some of their pop-political punch.
