    By far the bands most advanced, yet still immediate, album. Like a more progressive 'Pinkerton', or a more tuneful 'In Utero', this album expands on everything that makes The Cribs one of the best of their generation.

    killer. just killer. Here the brothers jarman prove that the don't, and never did, need Johnny Marr. A significant progression on the admittedly fantastic Ignore The Ignorant.

    It is this very same forgettable, plodding, lo-fi characteristic that strikes the right chord with those that think The Cribs are the answer to rock 'n' roll.

    The group's fourth album confirms that their default setting is a bit four-square nuts-and-bolts punk pop. [Jun 2012, p.92]

    This is the work of a band who are beginning to realise they don't always need to bark so loudly to be heard. [Jun 2012, p.103]
