    It’s a beautifully produced album with a consistent sound which they can finally call shot gun on.

    This is a hugely charismatic debut that, above everything else, is just very good fun.

    This is a fun album, and one crafted with such impressive care and attention that even a few hardcore rockist musos might not be able to keep from being carried away.

    In a record where there are a minor derivations on a tried and tested formula, 'Still Life' is a major curveball; a high-risk almost jazz-like number that's almost ruined by the strange whizzing noise that could easily be a kazoo teasing its wares throughout.

    Their gentle, dreamy glide sounds like Foals without the hubbud. [Apr 2013, p.111]

    You want the mix to jump and pound and excite. But it doesn’t, and the choruses feel hung out to dry. This makes for a frustrating listen, because the talent is there – damn, even the songs are there.

    Mostly, what their reliance on groove rather than tune adds up to is dirge.
