  6. 6.0 |   The AU Review

    At about the halfway point on the record, it seemed like the band reverted back to their safety blanket of tried and tested sounds

  7. 5.0 |   BBC

    The band struggles to dredge up any sort of sparkle

  8. 5.0 |   musicOMH

    This is music to jump, chant and neck cider to, which is why their festival dates this summer may well be worth watching. As a studio album though, it's really nothing special

  9. 4.0 |   Uncut

    Print edition only

  10. 4.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Akin to going back to a club you haven’t been to in years, only to find the same soundtrack playing

  11. 4.0 |   FasterLouder

    Music that lacks a clear sense of purpose, of direction; no-one is trying to say anything, or achieve any sort of effect

    They all sound vocally constipated

  13. 4.0 |   Rave Magazine

    This kind of stuff barely cut it then, and it certainly doesn’t cut it now. Ordinary

  14. 2.0 |   State

    A perfect example of just why bands can’t keep making the same album ad nauseum
