    Read Review

  14. 8.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    For all its retro stylings, Flock is a record which is invested in the production of a better future

  15. 8.0 |   Record Collector

    The best is saved for last. Solarised is a brilliant piece of distorted disco, its swirling, indelible chorus railing against destiny in the face of romantic hope. Again, it’s conceivably the work of a mega-selling contemporary pop artist

  16. 7.5 |   Spectrum Culture

    Though Flock tends to make the typical sacrifice of originality for accessibility, Jane Weaver pulls off the synth pop styles she’s going for with swagger, occasionally reaching epic heights
