  2. 8.0 |   Q

    At times, it teeters between nostalgia and self-parody. But you can forgive the odd-slip-up, because the whole thing sounds so joyous. Print edition only

  3. 7.8 |   Paste Magazine

  10. 4.0 |   The Independent

    Sadly, Simple Minds have here abandoned the engaging Celtic folk-rock style they employed on last year’s acoustic makeover of their back catalogue, reverting to the wheezing attempt to summon former glories of 2014’s Big Music
