  1. The rough, live feel of the tracks comes across beautifully in the recording, and after years of winning over fans with truly rocking live shows, the Church have finally managed to capture that sound on disc.
  2. Longtime fans will find plenty to cherish on this very atmospheric and tuneful sortie.
  3. Forget Yourself is overlong and largely unoriginal, but it possesses a craft and sophistication largely missing from many of its modern-day guitar-pop peers.
  4. 70
    The Church are, against the odds, still a dreamily appealing proposition. [Mar 2004, p.100]
  5. There's little new stylistically... but the results are remarkably strong. [Feb 2004, p.98]
  6. The Church's languid melancholy sedates rather than seduces. [Feb 2004, p.88]
