    Easily one of the best debuts of 2012-or 2022, for that matter.

    While their vision may to many appear decidedly singular, the music itself is highly accessible and polished, and comes with a sense of being a carefully considered, fully fledged complete package.

    The results are atmospheric, rough around the edges but captivating, unique and extraordinary.

    Breton are distinctly maximal, all corrosive guitars, callow vocals and beats jutting at awkward angles. [Apr 2012, p.73]

    Breton sound more natural when they let their rock side dominate.

    Provides far more ecstasy than agony.

    Whatever Other People's Problems is trying to say is lost beneath the fact that it's so sonically muddled and abrasive, and lyrically imprecise.

    Breton arrive avec Other People's Problems qui est sans doute l'un des albums de ce début d'année. Inventif, ce collectif l'est, mêlant rock, Hip Hop, electo, electronica (2 Years). On à l'impression de parfois entendre LCD Soundsystem, Foals, The Streets, Portishead mais non il s'agit bien ici de Breton. Féliciations à ce collectif. Expand

    On "Other People's Problems" especially surprises a large number of instrumental inserts combined with fairly bass beats - inventions applied in the songs "Pacemaker", "Electrician" or on the other hand the mix of electronic motives: "Wood and Plastic", "Governing Correctly" adding some alternative overtones. The whole, however is hard to accept because of the artist's vocal. Or rather, decent lack of it. Expand

    This album is ambitious. The problem is that the band does not have the ability they wish they had... Lots of songs on this record are useless, bringing nothing to the listener. There are very little interesting things in the album and the band has no remarkable ideas.
    In the end, an album that you shouldn't listen or even download, because it is just a waste of time.
