    An album full of jukebox hits. [Mar 2007, p.98]
  2. It starts out inchoate and hard to put your finger on, then coalesces into something wiry and unshakable.
  3. 80
    On Yours Truly, Angry Mob, Kaiser Chiefs grow up, dig in and get utterly serious, albeit in a pogo-hopping, decadent British way. [Apr 2007, p.105]
  4. Ultimately Yours Truly, Angry Mob is, if nothing else, predictable.
  5. Yours Truly, Angry Mob is one of the catchier guitar records you'll hear all year... But the Kaiser Chiefs can also be a little shallow.
  6. They're the English equivalent of Fountains of Wayne.
  7. There’s simply no charm or subtlety on show here, and not even any cheeky, bona fide pop thrills in the vein of “Everyday I Love You Less & Less.”
