The 405

The album as a whole brilliantly captures those moments of everyday occurrence, and the tension and tedium they negate.

NME

If he carries on like this, he’s going to be MASSIVE, capitals absolutely necessary.

An uneven album then, but in parts an immensely satisfying one.

Drowned in Sound

The ingredients and apparatus that give this album any quality in the first place are the same ingredients that restrict it

His last album was superb. This is a bit of a let-down, with too many of the tracks sounding indistinguishable from the rest. 'Lion' is great, and 'Harlequinade' would have been too, were it not for the out-of-tune vocals.
