  1. 9.0 |   God Is In The TV

    In spite of touching on some fairly grim detail, is one of the most quietly optimistic records that Moffat has ever made – increasingly at peace with insecurities, flaws, and things beyond his control

  2. 8.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Some of these songs could be parallel universe versions of Arab Strap tales; the scenes quite similar, but the perspective lightened, finding tender humor in human intimacy that’s tart but not bitter

  3. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    The wit and wisdom of Moffat is about as sharp as ever here and ‘Hubby’ is clearly at the top of his game

  6. 8.0 |   The Quietus

  7. 8.0 |   Mojo

    A misbegotten romance plays out across the album in disturbing, always enthralling fashion. Print edition only

  8. 8.0 |   Uncut

    It's droll, evocative and occasionally moving. Print edition only

  9. 7.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    A set of songs that come to life with a storied, bright-eyed wisdom, but no single track captures the Moffat dichotomy quite like ‘Party On’

  10. 6.0 |   Q

    A starkly modern folk record. Print edition only
