    Idle No More is inspiring on many levels, but mostly because it beckons us to dance passionately and live fully in the wake of ever present darkness.

    King Khan is, so far, pursuing a sound that is more huge than slick, and it sounds great.

    Idle No More is evidence that this band is serious (sometimes) and it's in it for the long haul.

    Nothing here is exactly restrained, but KK&TS seem to have realised that the slower burn can be just as effective as the full blaze. [Oct 2013, p.70]

    This overdue follow up to debut What Is? proves that years of touring a live show described as an "aural orgasm" hasn't blunted their sense of humour. [Sep 2013, p.92]

    In addition to being a contender for garage-rock album of the year hook for hook, chord progression for chord progression, there are lots of strong personal touches here.

    If Idle No More doesn't necessarily sound like the product of manic intensity and dripping sweat, there's no questioning the spirit at the heart of this solid, memorable set. [Aug-Sep 2013, p.91]
