  1. Coxon has come up with an album full of raw guitar licks, killer hooks and heartfelt lyrics.
  2. Coxon clearly shows a mastery that comes from experience, and when he hits his groove it’s infectious.
  3. 80
    Full of ripping guitar work and hooks galore. [#74, p.95]
  4. He lays bare pissed-off tantrums and his emotion through a burgeoning self-belief and raw musicality to create his endearingly bittersweet masterpiece.
  5. A fine album that, while not likely to win any prizes for Gorillaz-style innovation, will resonate, both musically and lyrically, with fans young rather than old.
  6. It's true that guitar-pop is all this is, but it's still bloody good stuff.
  7. The problem with Love Travels At Illegal Speeds is its lack of variation and the dominant subject matter. [#15]
