  1. It's not vintage and it doesn't finally deliver what the hype of "Psyence Fiction" promised, but given enough time it's an album you could learn to love.

    This album, as seemingly different as each song is, runs pretty smoothly.
  3. End Titles varies in style even more so than a "regular" UNKLE album. Despite this, there are signposts that mark it as a definite UNKLE creation. [Fall 2008, p.89]
  4. Unfortunately there are too many moments where the pace flags, however, and Lavelle, while not exactly running out of ideas, falls back on the familiar ones.
  5. UNKLE are good at gothic bombast and when they pile on the strings they produce densely atmospheric pieces such as 'Cut Me Loose.'
  6. Despite boasting another stellar line-up of guest vocalists, James Lavelle’s dance-rock project once again fails to convince.
  7. Besides these somewhat untraditional, lackluster guest spots--odd that the one thing that used to hold Lavelle above water is now the most notable problem--is the fact that End Titles...Stories for Film has absolutely no flow to it, something Lavelle more or less acknowledges in the liner notes.

    Just moving. War Stories with more ambiance.

    Atmospheric, but not particularly memorable or exciting.
