    Last Night is a multi-layered delight that relates the experiences of clubbers up and down the country. The band understand that there are typical experiences that bind all clubbers together and they revel in detailing them. Musically, it is a wonderfully diverse record that perfectly replicates the heterogeneity of any club scene. Last Night is not only the perfect soundtrack for one monumental night out, but it's also the soundtrack to the entire formative clubbing years.

    This mature, experienced point of view on the nation’s favorite pastime is bound to rock clubs this summer.

    While Last Night might seem dressed to impress, Benin City hold a mirror to London’s nightlife that condemns and empathises in equal turns. And, even more than Fires, Idehen and the gang weave a mesmerising web, one you could either sit and admire at home or bounce up and down on the dancefloor.

    It's a patchwork, with many edges left untrimmed, but Idehen's word's are always worth leaning in for. [Summer 2018, p.106]

    In their rousing live shows, Benin City are better able to keep up the momentum and present a case for the preservation of London’s club scene, but Last Night is still a fun late-night journey around the boroughs.

    They haven't quite arrived on a focused, cohesive sound yet. They certainly have something to say about the state of London nightlife, however, and it's worth paying attention to their insightful observations.

    Where once were "chat-up lines and stairwells" ("Take Me There"), beige luxury apartments now stand. [Jul 2018, p.24]
