    Easily outstrips The Remote Part as Idlewild's worst attempt at music. This is proof that music can break your heart, but for all the wrong reasons.

    this is a poor reflection of what the band is capable of producing. i looked forward to this album for so long and it is such a frustration to find out warnings and promises is, it hurts to say, not very good im afraid.

  1. Woomble’s lyrics, while literate, are never quite as clever as his supporters would like to believe.
  2. ‘Warnings / Promises’ is the work of a band pushing itself to the limits of its generous, but ultimately not boundless musical ability.

    There are times when their admiration for R.E.M. burns a little too brightly... but overall this marks another step forward. [Mar 2005, p.100]
