  • Summary: 'Heroes' marks the third album for the ever-strange UK outfit, who self-produced the disc and handed it off to Nigel Godrich (Radiohead) for mixing.

  1. Moon-eyed stoners looking for a 21st-century Pink Floyd should seek out the Beta Band. [7 May 2004, p.86]
  2. While the trippy Scottish foursome's third disc may make a few nods to reality when it incorporates boring things like, you know, choruses and verses, songs like "Assessment" and "Liquid Bird"--all electronic gurgles and off-the-wall vocals--still wave the freak flag.
  3. We've rooted for them and been scantly rewarded, but at last they’ve done it - 'Heroes To Zeros’ is great and they know it.
  4. "Heroes to Zeros" is clearly the product of long hours of multitracking, with just enough song in each track to hang all the instrumental ideas on.
  5. The Beta Band have added muscle to their rickety rock chassis without losing their past work's wood-fairy charm. [Aug 2004, p.106]
  6. 40
    A slightly disappointing attempt to hammer their quirks into a more commercial rock shape. [May 2004, p.99]
