  1. 9.0 |   God Is In The TV

    What it may lack in big choruses and instantly hummable hooks, on second and third listens Everything Is Forgotten spreads its metaphorical swan wings and soars majestically around the mirror lake before landing strutting on the shore

  2. 8.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    After shedding the occasional musical aimlessness of his debut, Webb has produced a tight, exciting, stonker of an album. Yes, stonker

  6. 7.0 |   The Music

  7. 6.0 |   All Music

    The potential is clearly still there, but next time they'll really need to embrace and explore it to their full ability if they are to make their mark

  8. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    It sounds as if Methyl Ethel are still figuring out who they are, but their ongoing investigation is reasonably enjoyable

  9. 6.0 |   NME

    If Methyl Ethel can build on the best bits here we might be looking at a band to really remember on album number three

  10. 6.0 |   Q

    Aussie psych-pop trio's hooky, atmospheric second. Print edition only

  11. 5.0 |   PopMatters

    Methyl Ethel might not forge anything very unique in their introspection, yet their power to possess still manages to yield results
