    It's their talent for great hooks, that gets you in the end. [Aug 2009, p.99]
  2. That spirit of fun infuses the whole album: the more sophisticated the music, the more boyishly excited the band sound to be playing it--a pleasure that proves infectious.
  3. To reach this pop sophistication after four albums would be admirable. In two, it's awe-inspiring. [Aug 2009, p.105]
  4. Welcome to the Walk Alone ends up as neither a success nor a failure; instead, it feels more like a missed opportunity compounded by a bad decision.
  5. But all too often there's the feeling that, in trying so hard to match the melodrama Ronson and Pallet have draped around him, Waller loses sight of the smaller picture and sounds confused, out of place.
  6. 60
    Welcome To... is impressive rather than truly loveable. [Aug 2009, p.102]
  7. Welcome To The Walk Alone may have the skeletal blueprint of pop genius running through it like words in a stick of rock but it verges on insulting.
