    The Big Other is a pure and unexpected delight. [Apr 2013, p.101]

    Ash Workman and James Ford keep the production consistently intriguing, and repeated listens reveal fresh nuances and ideas. This is new music worth hearing.

    Despite a disappointing and fatigue inducing third act, standout tracks such as ‘Careful’, ‘Big Things’ and ‘Step Ahead’ reveal a level of innovation beyond mere nostalgia.
  4. The debut album from the London five-piece is impressive enough.

    Fiction's first album is comprised of sweet things shamelessly pilfered from the early '80s pop pick'n'mix. [Apr 2013, p.71]

    Ultimately, Fiction have all the ingredients to work, but they don’t click together as much as they should on The Big Other.

    Theatrical, over-blown, and just a little contrived, any promise of real substance sadly seems to fade after the first four tracks, and never quite returns.
