    Despite some negative reviews, this is a brilliant album. Although perhaps lacking some of the schoolgirl sing-along's of "Love, Loss..." it still packs some cracking choruses and is perhaps a tad more musical and grown up than the previous album. People expecting a duplicate of the first album may be disappointed, but this new album makes for a much better listen. Definitely worth a go.

  1. Aside from a thin outer veil, This Modern Glitch is a disappointment from a band who most listeners were probably only hoping to get a few catchy singles from.

    The band's power chorus-penning know-how is evident each of these slick and sometimes over-polished ten tracks. [Jun 2011, p.125]

    Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner can pull off this kind of mopey swagger while still tapping toes, but for all of their infectious dance-floor grooves, The Wombats could stand to lighten up a bit.
