  1. It's a wonderful, kaleidoscopic groove-fest that has nothing at all to do with a world in which Oasis still hold sway.

    Rather than delivering a post-modern mishmash, they effortlessly synthesise these elements, making themselves a candidate for the quintessential 21st century pop group. [Aug 2009, p.102]

    Cornershop's 2009 incarnation may not have the kinetic energy of the 2002 model, or the accidental pop brilliance of "Asha", but it isn't short on inventiveness.
  4. Judy is as wide-eyed and upbeat as indie pop will get this year. When it sounds this fresh, Cornershop’s brand of revamped revolutionary retro is well worth a reprise.
  5. This is Cornershop doing Cornershop very well.
  6. This is the friendliest batch of neo-glam to come down the pike in quite some time, never catching fire but never really striking a match, either, and it's the least adventurous dose of eclecticism, too, with nary a sitar, Mellotron, or sample out of place.
  7. Under The Radar

    As with previous recordings, Singh occasionally drives home lines or phrases to see that they bend properly into a hook, regardless of how malleable they may be. [Spring 2010, p.69]

    In a world of bad songs, not only are they back, but even better than before - unstoppable in fact.

    This band is terrible. I think they want to be the Beatles but they're falling far short of the Monkeys. Their lyrics are inane, their soundThis band is terrible. I think they want to be the Beatles but they're falling far short of the Monkeys. Their lyrics are inane, their sound is simplistic, repetitive, boring, almost impossible to listen to. If you want to waste your life, listen to this crap. Life's too short. Expand
