    As good an album as you can hope for from a pop band these days. These songs are extremely well written, with excellent chord progressions and melodies that remain in my head. The production is top notch too, and gives the album a real sense of cohesion. I'm writing this review in 2011, a testament to the staying power of these great pop songs.

  1. The 'club's most satisfying collection since 1990's A Catholic Education. [25 Jan 2002, p.107]
  2. Few bands epitomise so well the virtues of not fixing that which isn't broken.
  3. It’s by no means a landmark, and it’s not close to their best; it’s just well-done.
