    In terms of songwriting quality alone, Invasion Of Love knocks spots off the competition.

    Altogether, it's a wholly surprising musical development from a criminally overlooked talent. [Sep 2013, p.107]

    The Bronski era also lives on in the plinky, analogue sound, which is the album's musical hallmark; hear it at its best on Shoulder to Shoulder, a bit of soulful lushness that incorporates what sounds like a Bolton pub brawl.

    Think Metronomy, Junior Boys and a (much) chirpier John Grant. [Sep 2013, p.95]

    This is a debut with lots to love, abundant in experimentation and overall pop accessibility--and not many comparable collections can claim those qualities.

    Aldred's voice has also upped a register, his yearning falsetto perfect for pocket space opera "Progress" or the lubricious Al Greenisms of "Fingers Through The Glass." [Sep 2013, p.94]

    It could use a bit more dynamism, but its sophistication almost makes up for that.
