  1. 10.0 |   NME

    Dominic Harrison has never much bothered much with genre, and here he smashes through punk, pop, psychedelia, balladry, rock and more. It's wonderful

  2. 9.0 |   Vinyl Chapters

    Yungblud maintains a sense of grounding, accessibility and vulnerability across all 13 tracks, even when working in genres he is dabbling in for the first time (love song)

    A record that knows every trick in the book

  5. 6.0 |   The Independent

    Where Yungblud is consistent is his lyrics. He’s got a knack for shining a light on social issues in songs that are always catchy enough to dance to, whether that’s unrequited love, mental health or gender identity

    The upstart English pop-punk star’s second album buries his charm in clumsy genre experimentation, clichéd lyrics, and unearned bluster

    Weird! is a collection of good moments disappointingly hidden under an avalanche of sugar

  8. 4.0 |   Evening Standard

    It’s not aimed at grown-ups, of course. It’s for the kids who feel just as alienated as he claims to. They’re welcome to him

  9. 4.0 |   The Irish Times

    Yungblud may yet make a great album, but this isn’t it

  10. 4.0 |   The Observer

    The Doncaster firebrand’s first album proper lands uneasily between in-your-face and insecurity

  11. 4.0 |   The Arts Desk

    Teetering on the cusp, tonally, between Sheeran-land and somewhere more interesting
