  1. The band doesn't seem to have recombined The Coral's sources in a personal way; instead, it's made a crisp copy, with no spirit of its own.

    McCabe details a stoner's humdrum city life a touch too convincingly at times, but the spirit of musical adventure is nonetheless commendable. [May 2004, p.111]
  3. This sounds like a lost Coral album down to every last detail, which means that it seems silly to venture here unless you've at least bought one Coral album already.
  4. While it's easy to break Who Killed the Zutons? down into a series of emulations, you still end up wishing it wasn't all so plastic and more... well, lifelike.

    I first encountered this band when they opened for Keane at a show i attended. They have long outlasted Keane in my music collection. A fine album.

This is a great album, and the Zutons have discovered a highly recognizable, unique sound. It may take a spin or two, but once you get into this album, there's no turning back! Full Review »
