  1. 10.0 |   The Skinny

    The pointillist-style artwork is nicely representative – intricately clever up-close, unfussy yet beautiful when surveyed as a whole: quite simply, magic

  2. 9.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    This is a subtly brilliant album which harbours a quiet confidence, some outstanding tracks and a slight smirk knowing that ambitions were achieved

  3. 9.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Right now, they're taking us to where they want to go. And they can. Why? Because this is a band in complete control
    Read Review

  4. 8.5 |   BBC

    Errors have progressed from the tempered darkness of their debut and the shimmering shoegaze and rumbling beats of its successor to deliver their most composed, defined album to date
    Read Review

  5. 8.0 |   Scotland on Sunday

    Errors’ inventive ambience demands attention rather than merely folding into the mix; it’s chilly yet strangely warm
    Read Review

  6. 8.0 |   music OMH

    A smart amalgam of melody, ephemeral tones and motifs, it is utterly spellbinding
    Read Review

  7. 8.0 |   God Is In The TV

    A cerebral and multi-layered record, but it’s accessible and engaging
    Read Review

  8. 8.0 |   AU Review

    Errors have delivered the uniformly excellent album they’ve always threatened
    Read Review

  9. 8.0 |   Mojo

    A gorgeous and strangely spacey conflagration between the pastel end of '70s prog, the Kosmiche end of funk and '90s dance. Print edition only

  10. 8.0 |   DIY

    While retaining their core sound, they’ve smoothed out some of the clunky Krautrock influences and added more shades of tone and texture

  11. 8.0 |   The Digital Fix

    This is a fantastic album, varied in tone and musical texture
    Read Review

  12. 8.0 |   The Scotsman

    Wholly satisfying sound
    Read Review

  13. 8.0 |   State

    They ask us to have faith, but with a testament this rich and true, our belief is certainly not blind
    Read Review

  14. 8.0 |   Rave Magazine

    Might be more conventional and less groundbreaking than more celebrated artists in the “post-rock” canon, but even Mogwai and Battles are yet to make an album this blatantly inviting
    Read Review

  15. 8.0 |   Clash

    More corporeal than ethereal, the beauty here is constantly shifting, like mercury. It does contain magic, not of another world, but of this
    Read Review

  16. 8.0 |   Q

    Who knew that sorcery and Scottish landscape-inspired electronica would combine so well? Print edition only

  17. 7.6 |   Beats Per Minute

    An impressive album, one which reveals as much on its tenth listen as on its first
    Read Review

  18. 7.5 |   Prefix

    Errors have built a subdued and often gorgeous album with very little that needs deciphering. Sure you can’t call it seminal, but Errors’ egalitarianism is pretty damn lovable
    Read Review

  19. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    Once those melodies start making sense in your head, boy does this album become one to stick with
    Read Review

  20. 7.0 |   No Ripcord

    Here we have Errors firing on all cylinders and exhibiting the canny combination of eminently danceable rhythms with big hooks and gorgeous synth melodies
    Read Review

  21. 7.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    The ambitious Have Some Faith in Magic marks the full realization of the Errors sound
    Read Review

  22. 7.0 |   The Quietus

    Have Some Faith in Magic is very pretty and very meaningless
    Read Review

  23. 7.0 |   Bowlegs

    It’s great party music, it’s got a unique vibe, it’s colourful and it’s wonky
    Read Review

  24. 7.0 |   The 405

    There's nothing below 'good' here but there just isn't really anything that exceeds that level. This makes Have Some Faith In Magic a strong album that will be enjoyed but unfortunately not especially memorable
    Read Review

  25. 7.0 |   NME

    Sees them unbuttoning those stiff top-collars and delivering some of their finest pop bangers to date
    Read Review

  26. 6.0 |   Uncut

    Errors give themselves a kick up the backside and try to write some less bookish, more satisfying tunes. Print edition only
