    The trademark use of acoustic as a lead guitar still sounds refreshing, and Knights' sweet and salty vocal style is still full of vulnerable charisma. [Nov 2013, p.88]

    There's a renewed focus and a hitherto undetectable oomph, both achieved without jettisoning their trademark subtlety. [Nov 2013, p.116]

    The result is that We Were Here, while still sounding fresh and inspired on its own terms, is imbued with much of the lyrical passion and melodicism of Turin Brakes' past work.

    It gets a bit ploddy at times, but their knack for a good tune, a sweet harmony and the odd fiery guitar break keeps it all on the right side of mellow. [Oct 2013, p.75]

    Ultimately, We Were Here is another strong return from Turin Brakes, one that doesn’t stray far from their acoustic niceties, but one that also seeks out a natural progression.

    In truth, there is very little “filler material” on We Were Here and Turin Brakes’ years of practice have culminated in some of their very best and most surreal and complex work.
