Nov 12, 2020The sound of a band resurgent, ‘Night Network’ will have you falling in love with The Cribs all over again. Tapping into their core sounds and core values, it finds the band emerging from their legal troubles triumphant, relishing the vitality of being able to make music together, in the same room, at the same time.
MojoNov 12, 2020The resulting 12 songs return the group to their earlier sound, a chaotic bundle of charm and romance, realism and poppy experiment. [Dec 2020, p.83]
UncutNov 12, 2020It's the smoother, almost surfy, tones of tracks like "Deep Infatuation" and "Earl & Duke" that offer a pleasing change of tone from the familiar indie racket. [Dec 2020, p.29]

Nov 20, 2020I love The Cribs, no doubts. But I've always felt that in most of the Jarman Bros records they slip a little bit in the track order. II love The Cribs, no doubts. But I've always felt that in most of the Jarman Bros records they slip a little bit in the track order. I absolutely love every record, but sometimes I think that some songs are misplaced. The amazing thing is: it doesn't happened in Night Network.
The album is very surprising. It brings a vintage vibe to the band and very unique melody. The raw and real is still there (they didn't left their mojo and essence out). But they left their most grunge side in 24/7 Rockstar Sh1t album and decided to bring a brand new The Cribs facet.
Specially the creamy sound added to Ryan's guitar souding is so cozy and hypnotizing. I would highlight (besides the singles) Screaming In Suburbia, Deep Infatuation, Under The Bus Station Clock and Siren Sing-Along.
The Night Network makes the listener travels in time. From 50s, 60's and 70's to 90's, 00s and today. Absolutely amazing. That is not an album, but an immersive device right into the velvet constellation drawn by Ryan, Gary and Ross.… Expand
