  1. 9.0 |   The Fly

    ‘Let It Beep’ manages to be both refreshingly innovative and instantly loveable in one gloriously manic bundle

  2. 9.0 |   NME

    A perfect dance/punk hybrid ... stunning. Print edition only

  3. 8.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    With a mix of on the button electronics, synths and programming fused with classic, hook-heavy 70s rock Let It Beep is a thrill a minute

  4. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    If you manage to stand back from trying to over-analyse and contextualise their sound, you are ultimately left with a record that is catchy, unashamedly self indulgent and in all senses, fun

  5. 8.0 |   The Quietus

    This is rock music made in the mould of TV On The Radio – dirty guitars and multiple layers of percussion – and put together with extremely smart production

  6. 8.0 |   BBC

    A charming and entirely unforeseen hit for tastes demanding their rock a little rough-hewn and happily unaffected. That it makes Kings of Leon sound as sonically redundant as U2 and Oasis is merely an accidental bonus

  7. 8.0 |   Subba Cultcha

    Time to give up the day jobs, cos’ for these white coated nerds, the groupies just came calling

  8. 8.0 |   State

    ...a relatively short but extremely welcome shock to the system, bursting at the seams with interesting ideas and infectious melodies
