  • Summary: The third album for the indie band whose biggest hit, "Valerie," was remade by Amy Winehouse.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 9
  2. Negative: 0 out of 9
  1. At a time when labelmates (and, in the minds of the UK music press, rivals) the Coral are seemingly at a bit of a musical crossroads, the Zutons have made the album that delivers on their early promise.
  2. True to form, this third record pootles around before, ultimately, achieving lift-off.
  3. As this flits from widescreen country soul to palpitating Meat Loaf theatrics, the overriding impression is of a band that's having a blast. [July 2008, p.99]
  4. It's not a bad record, but by The Zutons' own extremely high standards, it's a disappointment.

    Howver uncool, these la's will have loads more hits in '08. [July 2008, p.104]
  6. Cosmic Scousers the Zutons decamped to LA to record their third album, and it shows.
  7. 40
    Mark Ronson will be looking elsewhere for his next single. [July 2008, p.115]

    Much better than their sophomore effort. Very solid, and some nice work on this one.

    What happened? Their first cd was so good... I know who killed The Zutons... themselves.
