  1. What makes this possibly the best album of the band’s career is that it represents how sonic exploration can actually go right.
  2. Romance Is Boring smacks of that feeling, knowing more than before but still trying to hash out just where to go with it. It's fun watching bands grow; it's been a pleasure watching this band grow up.
  3. While unquestionably delivering more of the goods fans are sure to get excited about, on their new record, Los Campesinos! also prove they aren't one-trick ponies, boasting some welcome musical and conceptual range.
  4. It might’ve made a better EP than LP. But even at their brattiest, the Welsh indie-rockers in Los Campesinos are a tough lot to hate. Their cacophony of instruments and voices aptly conveys what the music is about.

    A great album but for someone's first lc! album they should listen to We are Beautiful, We are Doomed. While Romance is Boring is a more mature album it lacks the energy or We are Beautiful has. Full Review »

    My favourite lc! album, different to their previous two albums in that the sound is more beefed up, but still contains the signature lc! sound and lyrics. Full Review »

    One of my favorite albums. Great lyricism. Catchy music and lines and great and appropriate dissonance. The growth of this band gets me exciting for their upcoming album. Full Review »
