  1. 9.0 |   God Is In The TV

    A very well-crafted debut
    Read Review

  2. 8.0 |   NME

    Their debut is a hymn to maturation
    Read Review

  3. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    It's as taut and accomplished as any British rock album this year
    Read Review

  4. 8.0 |   The Fly

    Hurtles head first into the heart of darkness and emerges as both brazenly untimely and sumptuously absurd
    Read Review

  5. 8.0 |   Q

    Big things surely beckon. Print edition only

  6. 8.0 |   Mojo

    A triumph, Consummately navigating through beautiful lows and, at the last on White Chapel, exhilarating sky-highs. Print edition only

  7. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    A band blessed with stealth, steel and, as much as they loathe it, an overarching sense of the indie mainland. Rest assured, their world of pain is being put to good effect

  8. 8.0 |   Pop Matters

    It is unfair to repeatedly compare S.C.U.M. to The Horrors, but that Again Into Eyes is on par with The Horrors’ sophomore release Primary Colours is a very hopeful sign

  9. 8.0 |   Under The Radar

    A magnificent opening salvo ... recalls the fuck-all attitude and melodies of David Bowie and Brian Eno circa their '70s glam phase

  10. 7.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    It will be interesting to hear what direction they are planning to take their striking sound next
    Read Review

  11. 7.0 |   Bowlegs

    S.C.U.M can be quietly proud of their debut, which at once manages to prove the band’s detractors wrong and serve as an indication that this particular brand of British post-punk is here to stay

  12. 7.0 |   BBC

    There’s a sense that S.C.U.M. are only just beginning, and the promise here suggests you should mark them for future greatness

  13. 6.7 |   Pitchfork

    The band relies less on sharp, mix-piercing leads than on amorphous washes from which the melodies gently emerge-- it's an accomplished sound
    Read Review

  14. 6.0 |   The Quietus

    This album falls victim to the more-is-more syndrome. It douses otherwise stronger and more distinctive songs in far more reverb and echo than it needs
    Read Review

  15. 6.0 |   The AU Review

    This is not a pop album as such but an album of noise, layers and sounds which dabbles healthily in melody and dance
    Read Review

  16. 6.0 |   Rave Magazine

    Like a less-manic Joy Division, or a more straightforward Bauhaus
    Read Review

  17. 6.0 |   Spin

    This guitarless London quartet tries to seduce you with darkly ambient keyboard flourishes, ghostly vocals, and a bold disavowal of obvious hooks
    Read Review

  18. 6.0 |   Uncut

    A surprisingly groovy pop record. Print edition only
