  • Summary: The second album for the British group was produced by Mark Ronson.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 9
  2. Negative: 0 out of 9
  1. 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.

    It's their talent for great hooks, that gets you in the end. [Aug 2009, p.99]
  3. To reach this pop sophistication after four albums would be admirable. In two, it's awe-inspiring. [Aug 2009, p.105]
  4. 60
    Beneath the glitzy production, the songwriting lacks luster--catchier tunes like 'Daniel' and 'Dem Girls' offer jaunty bouts of melodicism, but the vast majority of this elegant Brit jangle feels a bit recycled.
  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. 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.
  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.
