    Valhalla Dancehall sees BSP adding a ladle of shoegaze to their recipe. Unfortunately, the more formless moments on this LP are interchangeable and undistinguished. The more restrained, melody infused tunes shows that the band still know how to turn out a good riff, but they're mostly in short supply here. The weakest British Sea Power offering to date.

    Whilst British Sea Power resolutely stick to their principles of unpredictability, Valhalla Dancehall runs aground in an effort to pack past glories with new found mid tempo multi textured arrangements that lack punch or focus

    Like all BSP records, Valhalla Dancehall aims for the nosebleed section while remaining oddly detached.

    Pugnacious indie squares up to all-comers. [Feb. 2011, p. 106]

    With Valhalla Dancehall, it's time to laud British Sea Power for attaining greatness strictly on their own terms. [Feb. 2011, p. 116]
