  1. A rather more satisfying record than their second.
  2. It's this mixing of old and new dynamics that makes Nightfreak and the Sons of Becker such a compelling listen.
  3. The album glistens with supple melodies, chameleon-like stances towards the history of rock and orderly, accomplished instrumental prowess.
  4. Provides us with a fascinating insight into the mindset of a band who’ve gone from BMX riding curio’s to the oddest paid-up residents of the top ten for years.
  5. Boils with energy, excitement, and a passion to experiment.

    Restores the rougher edges... but with slighter songs. [13 Feb 2004, p.71]

    Nothing essential, but a nice carry over from the second album and a good filler til we get the real deal with their third album proper.

    don't understand the negative press. if you're looking for a coral fix until their next full length, this is it.
