    Stirratt and Sansone combine this all into a scrumptious hotpot of classy, classic songwriting, rich in texture and flavour. [Feb 2014, p.111]

    [The album boasts] more accomplished songwriting than some bands manage in a career. [Mar 2014, p.96]

    What they’ve found, is pop perfection, and Fifth is a contemporary gem.

    The duo's sophisticated feel fro arrangement, the primary point of interest, is on display throughout. [Feb 2014, p.71]

    Fifth falls in line on both counts, highlighted by the wistful, contemplative power-pop anthems “None of This Will Matter” and “Things on My Mind” but also lined with a lot of forgettable folk-tinged Middle of the Road rockers, the latter swirling together in a nondescript sea.
  6. 42
    Fifth is too clean, too tame. Only the first song (which ironically warns that “none of this will matter”) leaves any lasting impact; the rest drift by with indifference.

    Their latest is another reliably pleasant, if inconsequential offering. [No. 106, p.52]
