  • Summary: The third album for the English quartet was produced by Paul Savage.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 10 out of 14
  2. Negative: 0 out of 14
  1. There’s no better soundtrack to getting by and falling in love as the world wobbles unsteadily about us.
  2. 80
    These Englishmen have learned impulse control. Frontman Eamon Hamilton's playful yelp has given way to a sturdier sound.
  3. You’d be hard pressed to say that they didn’t get it right on the first two, but Touchdown unites all that is great about countrymen Arctic Monkeys.
  4. There are fewer moments of reckless genre experiments on Touchdown than there were on past Brakes efforts, and when there are, they feel purposeful, like the band had some alt-country (or quick punk song) quota to fill.
  5. Touchdown is a concise, flab-free 35 minutes of music made by a band, which despite their collective CVs, probably wouldn't be picked out of a line-up.
  6. Oddly, the once-acerbic group is now best at being sweetly lovestruck. Now they need another facet that works as well.
  7. The band's third full-length, Touchdown, is more of a 10-yard pass than a score.
