    A true master in career-best form. [Summer 2019, p.112]

    12 tracks, and none breaking four minutes – so no idea is wrung dry, and nothing overplayed. Long may the late flowering of Perrett continue.

    Both this record and How the West was Won would have been notable just because Perrett was still alive and making music again; the high level of the music he's actually making mean that they are both vital transmissions from one of the great lost talents of the punk era.

    Humanworld is every bit as good as, and at points even better than, its predecessor, as though Parrett's finally, almost five decades in, found his true metier. [Jul 2019, p.32]
  5. Mojo

    On this taut, pithy set he offers sardonic observations of human folly. [Jul 2019, p.93]
  6. 80
    The follow-up is even better, delivered with a greater confidence and urgency, and featuring a handful of songs that almost match up to his late-70s output.
