NME Album Review

The NME’s album review, which appeared in this week’s print edition, has today been posted online at their website. They give the album 8/10, stating that, “Only the overcooked, Blondie-referencing funk of ‘Compulsion’ really disappoints”


‘The Outsiders’ is a trashy, loveable stomp featuring an ace distorted bassline and swathes of wah-wah, while ‘Winter Hill’ is the sort of anthemic rock song that U2 spend years and millions trying to write. And there’s as much chance of Bono singing about “grassy tracks” as there is of Doves singing about “sexy boots”.
