ADM rating[?]


UK Release date
US Release date
  1. 8.0 |   All Music

    Reveals a surprising amount of vitality and growth for a band that spent nearly half a decade apart. Not only is it a welcome return, it's one of the Fratellis' most consistently engaging albums

  2. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    "Jeannie Nitro” has obvious echoes of classic rock and, despite a dark undercurrent, is anthemic enough to be sung on the terraces of Glasgow Rangers

  3. 6.0 |   Q

    The band with a drummer called Mince remain nicely meat-and-potatoes. Print edition only

  4. 6.0 |   Mojo

    Fundamentally predictable. Print edition only

  5. 4.0 |   music OMH

    They sound like the kind of mature band that have reformed to plod their way around the stadium and festival circuit once they’ve reached the wrong side of middle age

  6. 3.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    It's completely inessential at best, or a cynical cash-grab at worst
