While it would have been interesting to hear a further evolution of the band's sound, the album offers plenty of adrenaline, pheromones and stealthy sophistication, thanks to Bob Hardy's driving bass, Alex Kapranos' expressive crooning and the band's unusual ability to make every song sound like a single.
Does Tonight satisfy what we were all hoping for after three years between albums, along with the lofty expectations that are by definition bound to accompany a concept album/rock opera? Probably not. But, is it better than "You Could Have It So Much Better?" Definitely, if not only for the points on the record where Kapranos and company get it oh so right.
JeroenHMay 1, 2009According to some of the critics this album must be boring and by far not the best they can do. Luckily the critics as usual have no clue, as According to some of the critics this album must be boring and by far not the best they can do. Luckily the critics as usual have no clue, as the difference in the rating between critics and users on this site shows.

It's their best album yet and one of the very best albums yet released in 2009!… Expand

Great stuff, still exciting, energetic and engaging. And scottish, which is always good :)… Expand

VéroniqueDECAUDINFeb 7, 2009A great, dancy, expected album.

"A band that once mattered" - who suddenly sound like they listened to too many recent Blur albums and think no-one gives a damn about tunes anymore. Unmemorable to the core and disappointing in the extreme.… Expand
