    An incendiary debut
    Read Review

  2. 8.0 |   Clash

    The best rock ‘n’ roll has always disrupted, ripped up the rulebook and caused inspiration and confusion in equal measure. On that note, Amyl and the Sniffers are an absolute bunch of pricks and we honestly wouldn’t have it any other way

  3. 8.0 |   Uncut

    Burns through 11 tracks in 27 minutes like acetylene torch burns through butter, as spin-on-a-dime tight as it is exhilaration unsubtle. Print edition only

  4. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Taylor's intense stack-heeled charisma dominates: whether raging or romancing, she's the queen of this glorious chunder from Down Under. Print edition only

  5. 8.0 |   Q

    Its 11 breathless tracks bottle the barely-controlled explosion of energy that masquerades as their live show, then sprays it all out again like cheap lager. Print edition only

    Primitive, raw and febrile rock’n’roll

  10. 8.0 |   NME

    The Melbourne gang make "pub punk" destined for the biggest of stages. With the producer of Arctic Monkeys' 'AM' behind them, this is snotty punk at its peak

  11. 8.0 |   Punk News

    It seemed the Internet was driving this band’s narrative, but with this release, they’re in control of their own story now. Where they go from here is up to them, not snarky bloggers, websites, or anyone else

  12. 8.0 |   NOW

    It’s rock ’n’ roll for 2019, though the band calls it simply pub rock. Either way, it’ll get a mosh going

  13. 7.5 |   Under The Radar

    Positive Punk may be making a return, and rightly so, but Amyl and her crew are doing it funnier, dumber, smarter, and sleazier than any of their peers

  14. 7.2 |   Pitchfork

    The Aussie rockers’ unabashed fetishization of 1970s staples like punk, glam, and their country’s sharpie scene only helps fuel the invigorating rush of their music
