    Transience might just be his late-career peak--a deliciously sour, sarky and occasionally moving study of modern life and his place in it. [Jun 2019, p.37]

    Transience finally give its long-serving creator the option of stepping off the road and retiring on a high. [Summer 2019, p.116]

    Transience is another reminder that Eric Goulden is arguably the only one of his Stuff-era peers to remain a scarily powerful and forward-moving musical threat. [Jun 2019, p.90]

    Packed with pop nuggets and the odd surprise. [Jul 2019, p.81]
