Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  1. Mojo
    80
    Highly politicised, yet leavened with deft vocal harmony and potent melodies, the album drips with passion and thoughtfully targeted ire. [Oct 2007, p. 90]
  2. There's no doubt about it, though, as in-your-face as some of these songs are, the Proclaimers are at their best when, well, proclaiming and protesting vehemently over simple melodies and a stomping march of a beat.
  3. This might be a ride through familiar territory but The Proclaimers specialise in steadfast song writing and this is sure to satisfy their legions of fans.
  4. The trademark Proclaimers sound was still there, including the finger-snapping opening title track, the staccato guitar that introduces "In Recognition," and the thoughtful lyrics, discussing religion on 'New Religion' and 'If There's a God.'
  5. Uncut
    60
    In fine and fiesty form, Auchtermuchty's Craig and Charlie Reid effectively slap you round the face with their latest batch of songs. [Nov 2007, p.116]
  6. Q Magazine
    60
    Life With You brims with both songwriting confidence and, the lovelorn title track withstanding, righteous anger. [Oct 2007, p.105]
  7. The material on Life with You doesn’t give much hope that the band will break past their “one-hit wonder” status, at least for a while.
