  1. 8.0 |   BBC

    It’s exciting, not self-indulgent; real, not affected
    Read Review

  2. 8.0 |   NME

    It is an elegant and, quite frankly, utterly beautiful record
    Read Review

  3. 8.0 |   music OMH

    Beautifully written and performed and deserves to be up there with this year's best
    Read Review

  4. 8.0 |   Q

    Print edition only

  5. 7.0 |   The Digital Fix

    The band have attempted to craft their own epic soundscape and it generally works
    Read Review

  6. 7.0 |   Bowlegs

    Broken Records have an extensive list of instruments and talent – we just wish they wouldn’t use it all at once
    Read Review

  7. 7.0 |   The Fly

    Sutherland’s lugubriously stoic storytelling coats everything in a cloak of drama, all adding up, inevitably, to yet another cracking album
    Read Review

  8. 7.0 |   Clash

    A thing of troubled beauty
    Read Review

  9. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    There's a genuinely amazing band in here somewhere, but they are still trying to find a way to make themselves heard to best advantage
    Read Review

  10. 6.0 |   The Skinny

    It’s perhaps less consistent than its predecessor, but given how divisive that album was, Let Me Come Home should unite rather than split opinion
    Read Review

  11. 6.0 |   Blurt

    Dark, rumbling, stadium-sized melodies
    Read Review

  12. 6.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Broken Records seems sadly satisfied in restricting their experimentation to the ambience and atmosphere of their music around the edges
    Read Review

  13. 6.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    The juxtaposition of the more ramshackle arrangements with the beauty of their rustic instrumentation is quite enthralling
    Read Review

  14. 6.0 |   The Scotsman

    heir second album veers close to the blandly mainstream sweep of labelmates The National and even Coldplay at times
    Read Review

  15. 6.0 |   Rave Magazine

    If you’re looking for a slightly more adventurous companion to your Mumford & Sons album, this just may fit the bill
    Read Review

  16. 6.0 |   Spin

    Let Me Come Home goes widescreen with a vengeance, trading in too much of the band's unhinged jig and bounce for a more generic-sounding epic soundtrack
    Read Review

  17. 6.0 |   State

    Let Me Come Home seems to be more a work in progress than something that will define Broken Records’ career
    Read Review

  18. 6.0 |   AU Review

    Falls short of the heights they’ve aimed for in its slight joylessness and oppressive sincerity
    Read Review

  19. 5.8 |   A.V. Club

    Unfolds like a workshop in recent indie-rock anthemcraft: lofty guitar textures, vintage string flourishes, and dour low-end
    Read Review

  20. 5.1 |   Pitchfork

    The overall mood is a little darker and the production rawer
