    A beautifully crafted debut album and one of the best post-Britpop albums available. James Walsh's vocal delivery coupled with the minimalist instrumentation creates a truly brilliant record.

  1. Starsailor back up their hype with a debut album worthy of more than a few cursory spins. [Feb 2002, p.80]
  2. The band, while heavy on charm, is light in its ability to demonstrate any diversity in its songs.
  3. The worst mistake you can make is to write off this band as just another sappy, sentimental Brit-pop effort, because you'd miss out on supreme moments of emotional clarity that far outweigh the muddier, more overwrought mistakes.
