New Musical Express (NME)An excellent modern rock record. Dense, intelligent, user-unfriendly and challenging. [12 Mar 2005, p.57]
UncutA masterclass in menace. [Apr 2005, p.97]
Jones still croaks out songs with that wretched voice of his, an amalgam of nicotine, alcohol and AOR. The guitars still churn out feeble riffs more appropriate for a Hot Wheels commercial than a grown-up's rock album, and even when they're on to something it feels like they're only fumbling with a good idea.

MarcD.Apr 16, 2005You'll sing out loud to this big, dark, crazy rock fest. Its hauntingly beautiful and seems to blast through in a myriad of colours.

It perfectly demonstrates proper British Rock.This was the point that Stereophonics became a globally recognised band - and rightfully so. It perfectly demonstrates proper British Rock. Every single Phonics album has a few humdingers, but this seems to have the least. It's loud, proud, raw-yet-structured and shows just how stunning Kelly's distinct voice can be when used correctly. Like albums by other modern-day Brit-rock icons (Oasis, Manic Street Preachers, Arctic Monkeys) it may not be perfect, but that's what makes it quintessentially British.
This was the album that assured their legacy.… Expand

Hardly the british equivalent of truly dull bands such as the Creed (no matter what anyone says, since the Stereophonics can actually write.!). and although they've never been truly dull, some of their work hasnt always inspired.. This album is different. Although not exactly a Marilyn Manson style shout-fest (although edgier tracks such as Deadhead come close) this LP is easily the hardest and most interesting they've ever released. If youve never liked the Stereophonics and/or have lent towards much more rockier material, give this album a go- you might just be surprised.… Collapse
