  • Summary: Stephen Street produced this sophomore set for Liverpool's Zutons.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 14 out of 19
  2. Negative: 0 out of 19
  1. The album is everything you might’ve hoped for--a bold rock sound, big hooks, clever horn parts, and McCabe’s usual daft humor. [#14]
  2. More proof that sophomore efforts don't have to be sleepy. [Oct 2006, p.212]
  3. 80
    Positively electric. [Sep 2006, p.143]
  4. The second album is much easier on the ear than its unvarnished predecessor.
  5. 'Tired Of Hanging Around' is one seriously pissed-off, paranoid, twitchy record.
  6. It’s their honest simplicity that offers a refreshing contrast to the irony of neo-new-wave disco retreads that are all the rage in the UK.
  7. Many of [the debut's] ragged edges have been smoothed out, and in the process some of The Zutons' collective personality has gone. [May 2006, p.122]
