    Rock N Roll Animals is a particularly curdled creation. [Sep 2013, p.104]

    Haines is still a force of nature, more Uriah Heep than David Copperfield, and his sharp-tongued critiques, especially of his chosen field, though tempered with moments of sentimentality, remain as volatile as ever.

    Beneath the sarcastic wit lies warmth and some of his most beautiful songs since Showgirl, which glisten with Bowie-ish 12-string guitars and endearing semi-autobiographical asides.

    He's in playful mood and the tunes certainly don't suffer as a result.

    It's not a classic and it won't get him back in the NME, but it'll more than entertain those willing to listen.

    Full of sound and furry. [Sep 2013, p.89]

    It’s a bit nuts, but the ominous, shimmering psychedelia of standout tracks ‘Three Frendz’ and ‘Angel Of The North’ elevate the album beyond a quirky, Watership Down-esque curiosity.
