    Joseph Mount and co have tried to narrow their focus, with 'My Heart Rate Rapid' and 'A Thing For Me' the most obvious benificaries of a new streamlined approach. elsewhere, however, an off-putting manic surrealism remains, which somehow feels like an act of self-sabotage. [Oct 2008, p.p.101]

    On a concept album about felleing sad and lonely in clubland, and the instrumental flash is balanced out by forlorn lyrics. [Oct 2008, p.149]

    At its best, as on 'Heartbreaker,' the singing has the deadpan charm of Talking Heads or Kraftwerk, adding to the likeability of men who know its better to be a robot than a hippy. [Oct 2008, p.108]
  4. Nights Out is slightly let down by Joseph Mount's voice--as with so many indie singers before him, he uses a flat drawl meant to signify glamorous ennui, but is merely unengaging--and the occasional tendency towards self-pity is tedious, but otherwise this is a solid effort

    Amazing, an incredible album that realizes that fun music can also have thoughts, can experiment, have a little IDM on it and also be pop and Amazing, an incredible album that realizes that fun music can also have thoughts, can experiment, have a little IDM on it and also be pop and obscure at the same time. Without any doubt one of the most interesting and entertaining records of the year for me. Full Review »
