    This is brilliant, nothing less. Masterfully written songs, crafty catchy tunes that spring you back to the height of the Brit-pop era.

    I didnt think he could top Hapiness in Magazines - but with this album he has. Absolutely brimming with catchy punky tunes you will be singing all day. Buy this album immediately

    I'm a big Graham fan anyway, but this really is his best yet. There is no bad track. Better than that, every track is real 10 out of 10 stuff, so what else could I give it other than 10? Perfect!

    Utterly and uncompromisingly brilliant, the only low point on the entire album happens several seconds after the last track when it suddenly dawns on you there is no more. But then you just play it again and all is well.

    Many people will tell you that there is nothing innovative about this album; that it has all been done before, and is, therefore, not worth much of your time. Those people are morons. Coxon has crafted the catchiest and most listenable album of the year thus far by hearkening back to the simplicity yet utter badassness of 80's punk like the clash and the sex pistols.

    It's all funny, sardonic, heartfelt and loveable. [Apr 2006, p.106]
  2. Sees a great guitarist becoming a great songwriter. [Apr 2006, p.113]
  3. 80
    Throughout, Coxon's masterly musicianship and shameless enthusiasm for such modish fare pulses like an electric current. [Apr 2006, p.110]
