    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The hypnotic techno loop of Dicker's Dream provides forward momentum, though it's the more contemplative moments, from No Reflection's sparkle to Moon In Water's limpid ambience, which shine brightest. [Jan 2019, p.113]

    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Best skip Stray Cat Blues though, a track so problematic it's a wonder Operation Yewtree haven't opened a file on it. [Jan 2019, p.117]
    • Q Magazine
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A Brief Inquiry... feel not just hugely entertaining and moving, but necessary. [Jan 2019, p.104]

    • 84 Metascore

    A minor work from a mighty band. [Jan 2019, p.110]
    • Q Magazine
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's an album that shows the breadth of Harcourt's talent, certainly, but you can't help but miss the warm burr of his voice. [Jan 2019, p.109]
    • Q Magazine
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A bastion of control and quaking vulnerability that strikes a match against its sombre surrounds. [Jan 2019, p.113]
    • Q Magazine
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's a journey that's wildly eclectic, hard to endure through every tangled turn, but impossible not to love. [Jan 2019, p.117]
    • Q Magazine
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It's not completely without merit--Brave New World has a certain swagger--nut this does stray bafflingly close to tribute band territory. [Jan 2019, p.114]
    • Q Magazine
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Hideously wrong, fantastically right. [Jan 2019, p.114]
    • Q Magazine
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It might not herald a return to the glory days but it does mean his recent creative slump has been definitively arrested. [Jan 2019, p.114]
    • Q Magazine
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    High drama in every molecule. [Jan 2019, p.114]
    • Q Magazine
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Powerhouse is a string statement: galvanised, streamlined, charged emotionally until sparks fly. [Jan 2019, p.113]
    • Q Magazine
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A confident step on from 2015's Contradictions. [Jan 2019, p.113]
    • Q Magazine
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    FM!
    There's only 22 minutes of material here, including skits--but his edge has never been sharper. [Jan 2019, p.113]
    • Q Magazine
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Niggling familiarity is a recurring issue here. [Jan 2019, p.111]
    • Q Magazine
    • 59 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It follows the million-dollar formula laid down on 2017's Evolve a little too closely. ... But as emotional Trojan Horses go, few do it better. [Jan 2019, p.110]
    • Q Magazine
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Every song here is an exquisitely constructed, shimmering pop gem, and jam-packed with Folick's unique perspective and clarion voice. A special thing. [Jan 2019, p.109]
    • Q Magazine
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Cantaloupe Island, for instance, hit the target, even if it's no match for the Herbie Hancock original. But with more cabaret material such as Me And My Shadow's louche duet with Sarah Silverman, you really wish you'd been there first time around. [Jan 2019, p.109]
    • Q Magazine
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Delta reveals layers few would have thought they had. Often though, these moments of interest get flattened by a wave of arena-ready bombast. [Jan 2019, p.108]
    • Q Magazine
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The first section--an intoxicating invocation of sea voyages and Bacchanalian rites--is richly instrumental, the second an otherworldly swirl of chants and ecstatic song that couldn't have been made by anyone but them. [Jan 2019, p.106]
    • Q Magazine
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's as an articulation of grief that this record speaks most powerfully. [Jan 2019, p.106]
    • Q Magazine
    • 68 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    You get the feeling even the band think the joke's wearing a bit thin. [Jan 2019, p.106]
    • Q Magazine
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's a quietly bewitching LP, storied and subtle and sweet. [Dec 2018, p.107]
    • Q Magazine
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It can ramble, but their landscape is so compelling, the scenic route is no punishment. [Dec 2018, p.108]
    • Q Magazine
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    No great leap forward, then, just a solidly impressive album. [Dec 2018, p.111]
