    A real jewel from an underestimated band. [Sep 2014, p.111]

    Alias is where the giddy exhilaration and buoyant lift of early Magic Numbers grows into a bold, spacey and sensational creation. [Sep 2014, p.75]

    With a purported 30 songs to pick from, the Magic Numbers ultimately boiled everything down to 11 of the group's most solidly engaging cuts to date.

    Alias perhaps lacks a truly killer song, a lightning rod to draw newbies in. [Sep 2014, p.94]

    The Magic Numbers’ latest LP may not be perfect, but it is a big step in the right direction.

    Alias is by no means a bad album--on the contrary, it highlights the maturity and progression of four highly talented and much loved British musicians--but it’s just not that fun.
