    A nonstop riot of positivity that might not change the world, but will certainly make it seem a less dismal place for the 37-odd minutes. [19 Jan 2013, p.52]

    The album just sounds like the same guitar riffs recycled, with the distortion merging them all into one.

    The title track of their fourth album actually begins with a similarly buoyant vein. [Feb 2013, p.107]

    This is a record which will no doubt appeal to long-term fans of the band as it revels in the same sonic territory as their previous output, and it works as a party-starting soundtrack with its simple lyrics and vitality, but there's a distinct lack of any real depth or enterprise.
