  1. 10.0 |   Gig Soup

    It exposes a deep dissatisfaction with modern society, but delivers it in a way that is both playfully cheeky and darkly menacing

    This is a stonking listen
    Read Review

  4. 8.0 |   NME

    Singing drummer Isaac Holman and guitarist Laurie Vincent are so larger-than-life they’re practically cartoon characters

    Slaves are angry at the world, but they have a wry smile at it too. Print edition only

  8. 7.0 |   The Digital Fix

    This is music without airs or graces, just a good old fashioned reliance on chunky riffs and propulsive drumming

  9. 7.0 |   The Music

    Anyone looking for punk rock that wears ‘70s influences on its sleeve could do a hell of a lot worse than Slaves

  10. 7.0 |   Clash

    A solid debut and one most likely coming to a festival stage near you this summer. Buckle up and be satisfied

  11. 6.0 |   Q

    Punk energy and scabrous humour win out. Print edition only

  12. 6.0 |   DIY

    The real charm of this record comes in its additional moments of character

  13. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    From snot-nosed Sex Pistols-style punk to raw, blustery Black Keys blues, there’s little originality here – but there’s undeniable chemistry

  14. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    It’s not so much that Slaves don’t capture the excitement of their live show on record, more that their live show isn’t designed for transfer to a major label album

  15. 5.0 |   musicOMH

    This is an album that flatters to deceive
    Read Review

  16. 4.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Peel back the façade, and you’ll find two white dudes parroting phrases and stealing time-tested tricks to sustain the rebel mirage, to cover for the fact that they have no clue what they’re even talking about

  17. 1.0 |   Crack

    Slaves’ borrowing of punk tropes and real problems to peddle this slickly produced hatefully-contrived gunk is despicable
