  1. A natural meeting point between Peter, Björn and John's Young Folks, the Cure's Love Cats and Feist's 1234, it sounds calculatedly quirky, and its overbearing sweetness sours its charms.
  2. Uncut
    A triptych of gauzy electro-country duests show what they can do when they shake off some of their self-conscious wackiness. [Dec 2008, p.92]
  3. Q Magazine
    While it's hard to see them replicating the crossover success of their old friends, these cross-genre efforts at crafting similarly off-kilter pop are packed with intriguing details. [Dec 2008, p.128]
  4. While 'Bruises' proves that a well-done song that sounds like other songs can make people take brief notice, Inspire mostly proves that recycling isn't the only answer.
  5. Does You Inspire You has a few high points, most of them hidden in the quieter corners of the album. In its more strident moments, though, it's just plain puzzling.
