  1. 6.0 |   Evening Standard

    The whiff of greatness never quite courses through their nostrils
    Read Review

  2. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    There's no escaping the fact that a good chunk of Music for the People trundles along facelessly.

  3. 6.0 |   The Observer

    They've lost none of their anger, but they have learnt to display it in more than one dimension.
    Read Review

  4. 6.0 |   The Times

    When the Enemy ease off the plodding working-class consolation songs and let their inarticulate rage take over, any reaction other than submission feels like pedantry.

  5. 6.0 |   The Times

    Enough adrenalised suburban disaffection to sweep along all but the most sceptical souls.
    Read Review

  6. 5.0 |   NME

    The Jam might have been the most-dropped-name in relation to their debut, but this sounds like friggin' Def Leppard, such is the overblown sense of grandeur.

  7. 4.0 |   Scotland on Sunday

    We need angry young men to voice their generation's gripes, not regurgitate the moans of their mums and dads.

  8. 4.0 |   The Sunday Times

    Explodes with hooks, choruses and melodies, but these are so indebted to other bands that locating the Enemy’s own voice is far from an easy task.

  9. 4.0 |   The Independent

    We get lighters-aloft anthems about their working-class roots.
    Read Review

  10. 4.0 |   The List

    Plodding working-man’s rock by numbers.
    Read Review

  11. 4.0 |   Spin

    The aping of Oasis’ more bloated days sinks things quickly

  12. 4.0 |   Pop Matters

    A patchwork quilt taken from torn remnants of richer musical tapestries
    Read Review

  13. 2.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Just maybe, Music For The People will signal the end of the music industry pumping money into third-rate acts stuck in a Britpop timewarp and ring out the final knell for the overdue demise of Ladrock.

  14. 2.0 |   Independent on Sunday

    Music for the People has all the beauty and charm of kicking-out time at Wetherspoon's.
