    Although this album has a different sound from their first album it still stays true to their style and is just as catchy and fulfilling.

    A bit more filler than the debut (a deserved 10 out of 10), but nowhere near as bad as suggested, in fact, it's brilliant. I love the beefier, glossier, T-Rex sound. don't believe the hype. this record rules.

    Kicks may take its leads from The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Orange Juice but these songs about Glasgow and girls still manage to invest the skinny-tie shuffle with some fresh contemporary verve. [Apr 2009, p.98]
  2. 1990s have not made a bad album, but like the decade itself Kicks never lives up to its promise and contains too many derivative and unmemorable moments.
  3. Their music is often thrilling and endlessly hummable.
