  1. 8.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Another excellent Liars album in an unbroken line of excellent Liars albums stretching back almost 16 years

  2. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Where TFCF will stand in Liars’ overall oeuvre remains to be seen, but for an album that wasn’t expected to be a solo piece, Andrew does very well on his own to make his mark

  3. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    Despite the band's downsizing, TFCF demonstrates that Andrew has always been the beating heart of Liars. This time, the unexpected was hearing him bare his without any uncertainty

  4. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    Even at its weirdest, Angus Andrew’s songwriting couldn’t be clearer, and that’s what makes it a mess worth unravelling

  5. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Like some of their greatest records however, TFCF creates a metaphorical space for the listener to explore to excellent effect

  6. 8.0 |   Clash

    Fifteen years on from their first album, it reminds you that this band's trajectory is beholden to nothing except Andrew's own insatiable curiosity. Long may it remain this wayward

  7. 8.0 |   music OMH

    TFCF might well be an Angus Andrew solo album under the Liars banner, but what he’s achieved here fits within the his band’s remit for consistently morphing and confounding expectation

  9. 7.5 |   Pitchfork

    Andrew looks back on the dissolution of his group with a strange, often contradictory album conceived in self-imposed isolation

  10. 7.5 |   Prefix

    Another great one, another reinvention, and a great first step for Angus Andrew on his own

  12. 7.5 |   Earbuddy

    Liars has exploded, and TFCF is what’s left of the rubble. And hey, as it turns out, the rubble that’s been left is still pretty awesome and a lot of fun

  13. 7.0 |   Uncut

    Acoustic guitar features, alongside synths, samples and field recordings, but for all their adventurism, these songs have structure. Print edition only

  14. 6.5 |   Under The Radar

    This album distills most of the group's themes and explorations into one grim package

  15. 6.0 |   Slant Magazine

    The album stands as a reminder of how sturdy the crux of Liars’s platform remains, even as a solo project

  16. 6.0 |   The Arts Desk

    The swampy music, abrupt changes in tone and jarring instrumentation also ensure that 'TFCF' is not an easy listen

    Has he lost touch with all reality or is he just ahead of the curve?
