    If ever there was proof that newspaper music critics are sheep this is it. A flailing, overbaked, simplistic, cowpat of an album - sung by a dreadful 80-style vocalist. But praised to the hilt by newspapers/magazines/websites. The man from Sputnikmusic rightly pointed out that no less than seven "proper" reviewers compared this to Definitely Maybe. Nonsense.No one will be listening to If ever there was proof that newspaper music critics are sheep this is it.

    Typical british overrated crap! NME gave this a 10/10 and that's no surprise at all. They've never cared about music before so why start now.

  1. Glasvegas maybe won't change lives but with its rich indie wall-of-sound nostalgia trip, it should get a few kids delving through their influences and forming space-rock bands.
  2. It's another debut album laid low by ravages of hype.
  3. So believe it: this is the real thing, no-one’s crying wolf, not even Alan McGee.
