  1. 8.3 |   Consequence Of Sound

    The English group's first LP in nearly three decades is triumphantly refreshing yet retro

  2. 8.0 |   Uncut

    These are impenetrable walls of off-kilter guitars, skronking saxophones and icy synths, topped off with Richard Butler's mournful rasp. Print edition only

  3. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Those of a certain overcoat are assured a Proustian rush: distorted guitars, windswept austerity and Butler's rasp set to Triple Action Strepsil. Print edition only

  4. 8.0 |   Q

    Comfortably their finest outing since 1982's Forever Now. Print edition only

  5. 8.0 |   XS Noize

  12. 6.0 |   PopMatters

    The first album in three decades from the Psychedelic Furs beats expectations just one track in with "The Boy That Invented Rock and Roll"

  13. 6.0 |   The Independent
