  1. 10.0 |   The Skinny

    The album buries dark treasures in bleak haze, a sequence of gentle revelations that emerge with shyness but linger indefinitely

  2. 10.0 |   Art Rocker

    They’ve produced a record that will only reiterate the fact that they’re one of the most consistent Scottish bands around

  3. 10.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    The Twilight Sad gave birth to one of the greatest British debut albums in living memory. That was in 2007 and just seven years later they’ve given us an indication that they could attain greatness on a par with MBV or The Jesus and Mary Chain

  4. 10.0 |   The Irish Times

    This is the sound of a wonderful band coming of age
    Read Review

  5. 9.0 |   The Digital Fix

    Album number four is a storming congregation of everything you've heard, loved and hated about the last three moulded together
    Read Review

  6. 9.0 |   The Quietus

    It's a record that will seep into your soul and see The Twilight Sad's existing devotees become part of a considerably larger love-in

  7. 8.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Shows an integrity to The Twilight Sad which cements their position as one of the more creatively important bands operating today
    Read Review

  8. 8.4 |   Paste Magazine

    The Twilight Sad’s most demanding album, dragging listeners from burning coals to murky, cold depths
    Read Review

  9. 8.0 |   Clash

    A marvellous new set that only develops its makers’ already enviable reputation
    Read Review

  10. 8.0 |   The Arts Desk

    They have taken shoegazing mournfulness to a new level of craftsmanship
    Read Review

  11. 8.0 |   The List

    By far their most cohesive album to date, it flows effortlessly between sounding epic, without being overbearing
    Read Review

  12. 8.0 |   DIY

    It’s stripped back and assured in its simplicity, yet operatic and beautifully composed. Oh, and it really is truly miserable
    Read Review

  13. 8.0 |   The 405

    A highpoint for the Twilight Sad and in many ways it is the best record they've made to date
    Read Review

  14. 8.0 |   Q

    Rekindles the dark brooding of the first two albums. Print edition only

  15. 8.0 |   No Ripcord

    It seems as if The Twilight Sad are enjoying themselves again, as hopeless as ever and bearing the brunt of inner conflict. Their infinite sadness will forever be their saving grace
    Read Review

  16. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    The Twilight Sad could rock Korgs or kazoos and their core sound would still remain intact. Graham’s distinct brogue incantations and their sodden, soaring refrains are in their bones

  17. 8.0 |   All Music

    Naked emotions and sophisticated music mark a new high point for the Twilight Sad
    Read Review

  18. 8.0 |   God Is In The TV

    An album that doesn’t let up, and holds it’s own to the final notes of the heartbreaking album closer ‘Sometimes I Wished I Could Fall Asleep’
    Read Review

  19. 7.8 |   Earbuddy

    An album that weighs heavily on the listener — an album that piles on the bleak feelings track after track, refusing to take off any of the baggage with glimpses of hope
    Read Review

  20. 7.5 |   Under The Radar

    Even as James Graham sings, once again, about loss and loneliness, it's expertly paired with a hypnotic or compelling mix
    Read Review

  21. 7.0 |   music OMH

    As the cliché goes, a return to form and the album of a band that has rediscovered what they’re good at
    Read Review

  22. 7.0 |   Tiny Mix Tapes

    The band sounds somehow more organic than ever
    Read Review

  23. 5.8 |   Pitchfork

    Rather than demonstrating the range of Twilight Sad, Nobody Wants to Be Here coalesces every one of their modes into a gray, midtempo whole that curtails the extremism on both sides
