    Ferocious and beautiful--Funeral For A Friend sound more like themselves than they have done in years.
  2. Top to bottom this album feels like a classic; a show stopper. No thrills, no cheap tricks and gimmicks.

    This is a fast-tempo, punk and metal-tinged homage to days gone by and those yet to come and, as a result, may well be the band's best effort since their much-lauded debut.

    Funeral For A Friend have always been ordinary chaps with ordinary ambitions. Yet That masks something important: there is extraordinary heart in what they do. And there is much of that here. [21 Mar 2011, p.50]

    While Welcome Home Armageddon isn't quite in a class with 2005's Hours or 2007's Tales Don't Tell Themselves, this 2011 release nonetheless indicates that Funeral for a Friend have a lot of life left in them.

    The one thing the album really lacks, though, is an obvious single. While many songs are memorable, there is nothing that suggests any of the tracks have the classic quality of "Juneau," "History," "Streetcar" or "Into Oblivion (Reunion)."

    Welcome Home offers both a different approach and a welcome return.
