    Irresistible. [#22, p.93]
  2. For now, at least, these kids are all right, and bubbling with ideas.
  3. Display[s] a broad musical taste that brings elements of Jack Johnson-styled folk and XTC jerk-pop to their unbridled, youthful joie de vivre. [Mar 2006, p.107]
  4. They are a less irreverent and more melodic Art Brut, swapping that band’s caustic wit for a far nicer type of honesty.
  5. 70
    The Kooks... boast an ingenious pop-rock sound. [Nov 2006, p.102]
  6. 60
    Breathless power-pop offset by an innuendo-laden lyricism. [Mar 2006, p.98]
  7. There are a couple of decent Brit-pop numbers... but the rest is utterly forgettable, shoddily produced retro rock that at its worst sounds like a Brighton-accented version of the Spin Doctors, minus the hit songs and amusing facial hair.

    Inside In/Inside Out is a really good album. These are soft pop melody tracks that are sung really nice by Luke Pritchard. It's nothing groundbreaking, but these English hipsters know how to make music and it shows on this album. B+ Expand

    It's not bad and has a few very good moments but it's pretty standard brit pop with a little bit of extra style to it. The longer this band have gone on and produced music, the less time I seem to have for this record. Expand
