    For All My Sisters is a thoroughly enjoyable record even if taken only at face value, but more importantly, it’s a potent reminder of just how crucial The Cribs really are.

    As exciting as the promise of the band going full Albini is, For All My Sisters shows that a cleaned-up Cribs can also be pretty thrilling.

    A classic, if often over-familiar Cribs album then, but the door is open for the forthcoming Steve Albini-produced ‘punk one’ to be the death-or-glory game-changer.

    For everything that's come before, For All My Sisters feels like another step up. [Mar 2015, p.71]

    A couple tracks too long, one or two tracks too bland but overall, it's another album from The Cribs that's more than worth a couple listens.

    Opener Finally Free is the instant crowd pleaser, but slow-burners Diamond Girl and Pink Snow find them in ambitious new album rock territory. [Jun 2015, p.89]

    It's honest and immediate, but predictable. [Apr 2015, p.73]

    "Ivory Hand" "Pink Snow" & "Different Angle" are all good songs. But it just seems a bit lackluster and a few too many similar drum beats and"Ivory Hand" "Pink Snow" & "Different Angle" are all good songs. But it just seems a bit lackluster and a few too many similar drum beats and melodies in comparison to other cribs album. I like that the cribs have an exploratory poppy angle to them, however, i believe a more alternative rock stance is their real forte. I don't think this album really compares with their previous e.g. "The New Fellas" & "Men's needs, women's needs, whatever" if i'm honest with you.

    It's alright, nothing to shout about.

    We have good music and good instrumental, but "For My Sisters" never finds the right tone, walking for 12 tracks, there are few that stand outWe have good music and good instrumental, but "For My Sisters" never finds the right tone, walking for 12 tracks, there are few that stand out one under the other, since many of them look alike, and many have no attractive.
    They play too much save.
