PopMatters

While it is yet another great display of talent, from the Kooks, it isn’t quite a step up from their past two outings.

Consequence of Sound

Junk of the Heart may not convert any of The Kooks’ detractors, but its hooks should be enough to satisfy fans of their light, catchy pop.

40
No Ripcord

With Junk of the Heart, the Kooks are completely discarding level-headedness in favor of offbeat trial tests that fail to give any of the tracks any added gravitas.
