  1. 9.0 |   God Is In The TV

    Let It All In sees John Bramwell moving in to a higher league in terms of songwriting, a strong and consistent album that provides I Am Kloot with their definitive work
    Read Review

  2. 8.3 |   AltSounds

    An emotional whirlwind of an album
    Read Review

  3. 8.0 |   The 405

    Bramwell's writing is full of his brutally honest and self deprecating charm
    Read Review

  4. 8.0 |   Daily Telegraph

    The idea behind this is to rip off those softening sheets and let the raw edges of Bramwell’s heartbreak stick out
    Read Review

  5. 8.0 |   Mojo

    It's John Bramwell's knack for a kind of 'surely this one must be a cover-version' classicism that impresses most. Print edition only

  6. 8.0 |   Q

    The private jets are still a way off, it seems, but artistic success is theirs. Print edition only

  7. 8.0 |   Uncut

    All kitchen-sink realism and mordant one-liners. Print edition only

  8. 8.0 |   The Fly

    Over far too quickly, it’s another near flawless record from the Manchester trio
    Read Review

  9. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    It isn’t a straight retread of its orchestral predecessor, and nor does it push the boat out towards more bombast. Instead, Let It All In is a tighter, more relaxed LP, full of beautifully restrained, crafted songs

  10. 8.0 |   BBC

    A consistently intriguing album and, in the long run, may even prove more enduring than its predecessor
    Read Review

  11. 8.0 |   Pop Matters

    An album that re-affirms that I Am Kloot and Bramwell in particular, have lost none of their ability to create beautiful music
    Read Review

  12. 8.0 |   Independent on Sunday

    May not score for originality, but it marries a downbeat songcraft to an expansive sound
    Read Review

  13. 7.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    A real consolidation of Kloot’s strengths – minimal production values, unobtrusive drumming and Bramwell’s chipper yet melancholic twang bringing the songs to life
    Read Review

  14. 7.0 |   DIY

    At times it’s so polite and elegant it almost passes you by, yet on every song you’re soon gently overpowered by the sheer heart and homespun wisdom of the lyrics
    Read Review

  15. 7.0 |   NME

    They're in familiar miserably poetic folk-song territory
    Read Review

  16. 7.0 |   music OMH

    It’s unlikely to win the band many new fans but you don’t get the impression that they care – and that’s probably just how it should be
    Read Review

  17. 6.0 |   The Observer

    There's a pervading drabness that they struggle to shake
    Read Review

  18. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    I Am Kloot have made another good album, not a great one
    Read Review

  19. 6.0 |   The Independent

    Stylishly rendered in simple instrumental colours, but it's not the cheeriest of experiences
    Read Review

  20. 6.0 |   Evening Standard

    While this Manchester trio still haven’t belatedly hit the mainstream, they now seem to be getting the respect they deserve
    Read Review

  21. 5.0 |   Tone Deaf

    At their best when they scuff up their tracks with maudlin attitude, when they work in some of the grit that Garvey seems so intent on polishing away
