  2. Negative: 1 out of 10
  1. Q Magazine
    Low on booty-shaking but high on atmosphere. [June 2002, p.119]
  2. Uncut
    This sees David finally jettisoning his twee heritage for a filmic kitsch. [Jun 2002, p.116]
  3. The Snare works well at moments and at other times feels like a rather tepid trip-hop release from a band still developing their sound.
  4. An album that lacks its own distinctive voice.
  5. Looper drops their bright playfulness for a sophisticated, darker counterpart which uses jazz, R&B, and trip-hop as its foundation.
  6. With the murmured, strictly cadenced vocals, The Snare resembles an especially wan, uninspired rap record.
