  1. Screw Wilco; In Our Gun is sounding very much like the Album of the Year.
  2. The end result is creative, inspired and, most important, individual.
  3. In Our Gun fulfills the group's early promise, integrating touches of Radiohead-style avant-garde atmospherics into a set of songs that are on the whole shorter, looser, and punchier than any of its predecessors.
  4. The five-piece British band has mastered the art of the recording studio, and this self-produced effort boasts the breathless enthusiasm of someone who's finally learned a difficult craft.
  5. It's an okay album, not nearly as overproduced as Liquid Skin nor as unnecessary as Abandoned Shopping Trolley Hotline. It isn't anywhere near the stellar debut, though, which is quickly becoming a tag Gomez is sick of hearing.
  6. The middling adult contemporary slop, although awful, isn’t what ultimately drowns In Our Gun. That blame can fall squarely in the lap of misguided attempts at moody electronica, something the band has more successfully dabbled in previously.
  7. If anemic blues guitar riffs and half-assed attempts at white-boy soul were the only problems with In Our Gun, it might almost be passable.

    Pretty good album, but not as good as the first and second albums.

    Gomez once appeared to have something interesting going on, but it's been a long time and they've gotten nowhere. Forgetable.
