    The delgados combine the most beautiful and sublime music with the darkest and most pessimistic lyrics to make an album full of great songs that will give you a hell of an emotional ride.

  1. The Great Eastern was successful because at its core, it never forgot to rock. On Hate, the Delgados seem to have forgotten that. At the same time, they've grown as songwriters and at times Hate is worthy of comparisons to the Beatles.

    Every track on Hate surpasses the high standards set by its predecessor. Go buy it right now.

    Though the pace is a little too consciously measured at times, and there is a certain sameyness about the arrangements, it's a record that, given time, yields up great rewards. [Nov 2002, p.100]
