  • Summary: This is the seventh album from the Australian indie-pop group led by singing drummer Tali White.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 10 out of 11
  2. Negative: 0 out of 11
  1. A terrific and thoroughly enjoyable effort.
  2. The Australian band's trademark winsome optimism, clever heartbreak and bittersweet cuteness are in classic form here, only lusher and more layered.
  3. The easy, carefree atmosphere is extremely effective; the songs’ warmth of proximity makes each better than it would be if heard alone, resulting in an album that somehow transcends its simplicity and becomes something of remarkable beauty.

    Only confirms the Belle And Sebastian comparisons this Australian band has endured throughout its seven-album career. [#69, p.100]
  5. Warmer Corners is like most Lucksmiths records; it's meant to be swallowed whole, and in an age of singles with albums attached to them, it's both refreshing and nostalgic at the same time.
  6. It’s smart, depressing, inoffensive pop perfect for a rainy day.
  7. Does nothing wrong but could do with a bit of meat. [13 Aug 2005, p.58]

    Tigermilk? Nah, they make Belle & Seabastian look like the Wu Tang Clan. But if you've always wanted to like B&S, but ended up wanting to slap them, you'll like this one. Expand

    Ace guitarist Louis Richter from Aussie band MidState Orange was recruited to be the "4th Lucksmith" for this album and the subsequent US tour. IMHO, his contributions push the music on Warmer Corners to a new level of greatness. Expand

    This is very fine indie pop. If you like Tigermilk, you will love this CD.
