    A great, if subtle, step forward. [No. 131, p.55]

    Their debut documented pure, unrelenting struggle. Ullages finds a way out. Mitchell remains a captivating frontman, but he’s an entirely different blend to the one we knew before.

    Eagulls have not just expanded their sonic palette, they also explore far weightier questions about life through their lyrics. As a result, the record instantly comes across as a more advanced and mature proposition compared to its predecessor, which was more interested in instant thrills.

    Without the raw energy of their first record, at first listen, Ullages was certainly a surprise. At first listen, it may sound weak, empty, a little too delicate. But after a couple more spins, the songs had begin to reveal their strengths. Moreover, they show that the still­-new band is willing to try new things.

    In substituting the ferocity of their debut for positivity, Eagulls have constructed a very good record that is arguably better than their well-received debut.

    If it's a little in thrall to its influences, it's not an altogether bad way. [Jun 2016, p.73]

    Monotony is a problem on Ullages--you long for Eagulls to move beyond the confines of their soundscape and extend their emotional range.
