  1. This patchy album shows these sharp-suited Londoners on safe indie territory, but caught in several minds.
  2. Sure, nostalgia abounds (albeit with a bit more modern sheen), but The Bishops have, in a terrible way, outdone themselves in their songwriting, and have given new meaning to the term 'autopilot'.

    For the most part, For Now is characterised by a lack of personality and charm. [Apr 2009, p.80]
  4. They tear through 14 tracks in a flicker over 37 minutes without ever going anywhere even vauely new. [Apr 2009, p.100]
