  • Summary: The typically quirky Manchester, England trio led by John Bramwell returns with an atypical third album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 8 out of 15
  2. Negative: 0 out of 15
  1. This time, [Bramwell] transcends that reference [to Robyn Hitchcock], with angular arrangements and a darkly romantic wit that's all his own. [26 Aug 2005, p.61]
  2. 83
    Eventually it hits you just how godlike catchy these banalities are. [Aug 2005, p.103]
  3. It’s all rather marvellous.
  4. Though on the whole, Gods And Monsters is a lesser record than I Am Kloot, what it lacks in great songs, it gains in stylistic advancement.
  5. After two albums of post-Britpop mediocrity, Manchester trio I Am Kloot kick things up a notch (or think they do), and suffer from bipolarity and an ambition that outstrips their ability.
  6. 60
    A charming composite of Damon Gough's homespun insight and Edith Piaf's anguish. [May 2005, p.106]
  7. 40
    Consider this follow-up one step back. [#69, p.98]
