MojoWell before David Essex provides a gruff guest turn on Relocate, you are entirely won over by this record, brimming with music from a postcode synonymous with class. [Jul 2005, p.106]
Q MagazineThree tracks in you realise with horror that [it] is a concept album. Worse, it's a concept album of kitchen-sink dramas about Tony The Milkman and Doris The Housewife set to Saint Etienne's dated indie disco. [Jul 2005, p.120]
JaimeZMay 23, 2006With any dubt about it, this is the first conceptual album from Saint Etienne and the best. Ethereal, danceable, nocturnal.
DuncanMJun 23, 2005This is the sound of London on a sunny holiday weekend. This is such a happy, cool, charming record. It makes me smile every time I listen to it.

JasonLJan 31, 2006Very good, very smooth with a couple of standouts. Q Magazine should be dumped from Metacritic. Who writes this drivel?
ToddRFeb 7, 2006Stiff, stodgy, and heavily dated, this album is perfect proof that they should've retired years ago.
