  1. 10.0 |   The Skinny

    Littered with unexpected flourishes, comical call-and-responses and an overriding element of fun. It's surely the party of the year

  2. 8.0 |   All Music

    From the synth drone and beat-pop on opener "Try Your Luck" to the disco glam rave-up of "All the Way," it's clear that Confidence Man have just one goal in mind: A sweaty, physical response to this throbbing, inspirational ear candy

  3. 8.0 |   NME

    This is the album we need in these hard times, even if we don’t deserve it. Put this record on, dance until sunrise, gurn through Brexit and rave until war is over

  7. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    Confidence Man want you to come out of the album with a fierceness not found before first listen. Dance like nobody is watching, then bring someone else. Bring everyone and feel cool

  8. 6.5 |   AU Review

    It was never going to be groundbreaking, but it is fun and confident. And frankly, there’s nothing wrong with that

  9. 6.0 |   Q

    Largely succeeds in maintaining the hi-NRG entertainment. It comes unstuck, though, when the sugary fun becomes simply irritating, as on the bratty C.O.O.L Party. Print edition only
