  • Summary: This debut for the Liverpool five-piece recalls bands such as Echo & The Bunnymen, U2 and The Verve. Cocteau Twins' Simon Raymonde produced.

    Oddly for an album so big in scope... it's very intimate and confessional. [3 Jul 2004, p.64]
  2. Ultimately, The Silent Hours is muscular, conservative rock music.
  3. Q Magazine

    Stunningly impressive... It's something that demands to exist beyond iPods, something that should be bought rather than downloaded, and played from start to finish. [Aug 2004, p.108]
  4. At its best “The Silent Hours” is a robust, reasonably straight ahead rock record and at its worst, a lumpen, forgettable distraction.
  5. Mojo

    Such earnestness makes for a terrifically hard slog. [Aug 2004, p.93]
  6. With each track they descend further into the mire.
