  1. 10.0 |   Kerrang!

    Deconstructive, deliberate and exquisitely designed, The Myth Of The Happily Ever After is the sound of a world-class band making truly world-class music. The only thing more exciting than every bar of its 11 songs is the promise of where Biffy Clyro might go next

  3. 9.0 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    Serves as an excellent and shockingly ambitious outing from a band that seemed to be trending in all the wrong directions not long ago. With this album, they’ve reclaimed control of their story

    The moment you hit play, you’re off down their rabbit hole once more, and while it may still dodge that screeching mania of their earlier material, ‘The Myth Of The Happily Ever After’ stands up stronger than some of their later albums

  7. 8.0 |   Vinyl Chapters

    Grows on you with each listen, and despite being a mishmash of throwaways, the themes woven throughout tie the whole thing together

  8. 8.0 |   Clash

    It’s an exercise in catharsis, providing an accurate snapshot into the minds and mentality of the band certainly, but also the general public of the last year and a half

  9. 8.0 |   NME

    What started out as leftovers from the Scottish rockers’ last record has turned out to be, ironically, perhaps their most cohesive album to date

    A solid and occasionally captivating record
