    The album cover reflects the mood of the album- and the listener. Bored. Depressed. Lifeless. Ivy and Gold is pretty much the only good track on the record, everything else lacks the vibe and spirit that Bombay Bicycle Club oozed with in their debut

    Still, like the lovable Muppet, Flaws is just a little too green to have any major impact.

    Ultimately, a steelier grip might be preferable to their warm handshake. [Summer 2010, p.77]
  3. Steadman's vocal stands out--its tremulous quality may be a hangover from, as the story goes, embarrassment at being overheard singing as a kid, but it heightens the sense of an authentically troubled spirit exorcising his demons in the quietly devastating manner of a Nick Drake.
