  1. There's nothing too complex or alienating about anything on this record; it is lowest-common denominator rock'n'roll painted in broad, primary coloured brushstrokes. [29 Jan 2005, p.57]
  2. An eclectic ragbag of influences coerced into great exciting guitar pop.
  3. "The Others" is no masterpiece, but it offers up a warm, beating heart where its rivals offer cold, cynical eyes.
  4. Like Oasis' first album, it's definitely going to bring people together, and it will certainly start mass sing-alongs, but something tells me The Others won't be making it to a stadium near you anytime soon.

    There's promise here if they can stay out of jail or the loony bin. [Feb 2005, p.94]
  6. This album alone is reason to mourn the Libertines. While their songs brought London to glorious, idiosyncratic life, the Others have all the wit and romance of a sign reading "golf sale".
  7. The Others are one of the worst bands I have heard in a long, long time.
