  1. Composed of more hits than misses, Nightbird soars. [21 Jan 2005, p.88]
  2. Smart, moving, approachable, and well constructed, Nightbird is Erasure's mature masterpiece.
  3. 40
    Seems dated. [Feb 2005, p.73]
  4. They've stuck the bleeps on autopilot, the beats on cruise control, and can only be bothered writing a handful of half-decent tunes. [5 Feb 2005, p.50]
  5. 40
    This is undeniably a better album than they've delivered in some while, but... there still seems to be a lack of conviction in their execution. [Feb 2005, p.100]
  6. 30
    Only a couple of tracks on Nightbird flicker with any sparks of life. [#67, p.96]
