  2. 6.0 |   Clash

    Slipway Fires may be overblown, but is still worthy of your attention.

  3. 6.0 |   Evening Standard

    Wire to Wire, the first single, is a piano-driven ballad that builds to a decent climax, while Hostage to Love carries echoes of the sublime Golden Touch.

  4. 6.0 |   musicOMH

    The album appears to be a more band-orientated exercise than previous efforts, which is no bad thing for those fed up of living on planet Borrell.

  5. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    Razorlight may be the Boomtown Rats of the Noughties.

  6. 5.0 |   PopMatters

    Forget all the drive-time rock and it does have its moments... Razorlight’s third album falls short of anything they’ve previously done.

  7. 5.0 |   Rolling Stone

    The band's piano–shambles and scolding sentiments frequently conjure no less a Yank than Billy Joel.

  8. 4.0 |   Spin

    Too bad the performances are so lamely tossed-off.

  9. 4.0 |   The Observer

    Their third album still bears traces of Borrell's previous incarnation as a lowlife hipster but Razorlight have found stadiums to their liking.

  10. 4.0 |   NME

    In simple terms, then, the third Razorlight album is utter, utter cobblers.

  11. 4.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Slipway Fires is preposterous, and in a way I actually wish I liked it more – there's something quite punk rock about basically turning yourself into the living incarnation of everything people hate about you.

  12. 2.0 |   The Quietus

    Musically, it treads water and lacks the drive and direction of former efforts...Fans will say that critics only review the frontman’s personality and can’t see the band for the Borrell. To which we must sigh and reply ‘If only you could… if only you could’.
