    The resulting album is an intense, visceral experience. It manages to combine the aggression of both punk and hip-hop.

    With Williamson delivering street-ranter streams of consciousness over Andrew Fearn's frigid post-punk/jip-hop productions, it's possibly not for the casual listener out for a few laughs but there's much to invigorate in its unaffected, defiant slagging of hated jobs, metropolitan hipsters, Twitter and more.

    The delivery is relentless. [Jun 2014, p.86]

    It isn't always the role of political music to come up with solutions. But nothing could be more urgent than the questions SLeaford Mods pose. [Apr 2014, p.58]

    Divide And Exit is a record that demands you sit up and pay attention, unable to do anything else while it's on, a ticker-tape of frustration and smart tension blocking out peripheral vision.
  6. Escapism’s one thing, but we need artists to sneer at the stars and sing songs about the gutter, and right now no-one does it like Sleaford Mods.

    While not quite equal to its predecessor, Divide And Exit offers plenty to get your teeth into.

    It's essentially angry swearing atop rudimentary bedroom synth sounds. But that would be reckoning without Jason Williamson's supremely entertaining delivery.

    The works are raw and technically poor, but the bitterness and hatred they express is overwhelming, illustrating how base feeling, when expressed with such belief, can overcome any window dressing put up around it.

    Divide and Exit is their most consistent record, but this is not music with a wide range.

    The Streets' Original Pirate Material crossbred with The Fall's Grotesque, it's nasty and brutish, but mercifully short. [Jun 2014, p.83]
