ADM rating[?]


UK Release date
US Release date
  1. 10.0 |   AU Review

    A record of politely beguiling English indie, with just the right amount of quirk
    Read Review

  2. 9.0 |   DIY

    Their most uplifting - and arguably their best - work yet
    Read Review

  3. 8.0 |   BBC

    So, having bettered their own game, and established themselves (again) as a cut above their peers, does this mean a bright and shiny future for our tweedy heroes?

  4. 8.0 |   Q

    Their made-in-LA third shows their suburban art-punk smoother by dancier rhythms than before. Print edition only

  5. 8.0 |   Subba Cultcha

    This is slick, rigid guitar pop with one foot on the dance-floor and the other out the door which fits more hooks into 40 minutes than many bands do in their entire careers

  6. 7.0 |   The Fly

    Henry and The House Of Lords’ staying power is something to respect
    Read Review

  7. 6.0 |   Uncut

    Retro synths, sunshine pop harmonies, brass and female backing vox are added to their spiky XTC/Gang Of Four-derived pop. Print edition only

  8. 6.0 |   Mojo

    Feels like a misguided, if wholly likeable, last ditch grab for success. Print edition only

  9. 5.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    There’s little of that wry self-assurance and quiet desperation, nor the subtle pastorialism or psychedelic touches of previous work

  10. 4.0 |   NME

    You’ll hanker for this in the same way you hanker for abdominal cramps
    Read Review

  11. 4.0 |   A.V. Club

    A collection of competent ditties. Print edition only
