    In 10 crisp, playful songs restores the exalted standards of the band's legend. [Dec. 2011, p.93]

    The surprise excellence of the songs and the music makes this the long-overdue fourth great Magazine album.
  3. This darkly amusing, awkward yet oddly graceful return of the ostensibly dead, more than measures up.

    Magazine manage to retrace where they left off, rediscover their intricacies and do an excellent job at defining themselves for, what one can only hope will be, new generations of listeners.

    The willful direction-as-misdirection of this solid record (if unspectacular by earlier standards of such a creative band) typifies their refusal to conform to expectations.
  6. Uncut

    Howard Devoto's arch art-rockers deliver a fresh set of oddball studies. [Dec 2011, p.90]

    It's not always pleasant, but in a funny way, it's quite compelling.
