    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.

    Fiction's first album is comprised of sweet things shamelessly pilfered from the early '80s pop pick'n'mix. [Apr 2013, p.71]
  4. Mar 4, 2013
    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.
  5. The debut album from the London five-piece is impressive enough.
  6. Mar 13, 2013
    Ultimately, Fiction have all the ingredients to work, but they don’t click together as much as they should on The Big Other.
  7. Mar 4, 2013
    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.
