UncutDoves have delivered, with honesty and affection. All other guitar bands this year will seem like a scratchy sideshow. [Jun 2002, p.110]
Alternative PressThis is a dazzling and haunting disc. [Aug 2002, p.74]

Q MagazineIt's a deeply Manchester album: melodic yet substantial, uplifting and acceptable to football fan and student alike. [May 2002, p.109]
