    This time the compositions are still thoughtful and exploratory and, although a tendency to emphatic angst dulls on the over-earnest, producer Mark Hutchinson is fully attuned to Dunlop's musical resourcefulness. [Jun 2014, p.75]
  2. Q Magazine

    It's on the conceptual pair of tracks 45s (c.69) and 45s (c.14), where he contrasts two generations of hipsters hanging outside the same club 45 years apart, that his imagination really takes flight, though, giving an exciting glimpse of where “tradition” folk rock might go. [Jun 2014, p.108]
  3. 75
    This is a very tight set, sympathetically produced and moving towards the mainstream.
  4. Jun 11, 2014

    More displays of his guitar skills would have been welcome, but this is an assured and entertaining set.
  5. Mojo
    Jul 24, 2014

    The hefty production complements a moody selection of songs about bullying, Italian Soccer and1960s London. [Jul 2014, p.93]
