A little bit cocky at times, sure, but with the tightness to back it up, ‘Night People’ feels like the band’s most natural and accomplished step so far.

The Guardian

It’ll sound great blaring from the car radio at rush hour, but you’ll find more darkness and complexity in Twilight fan-fic.

The Independent

Night People is a painfully disjointed album that shows a band at an impasse, unsure about which direction they want to go in. Stylistically, it’s a mess that even their most loyal fans might find it difficult to sift through.


The tragedy of ‘Night People’ is not its lack of instrumental innovation (that is present for sure), but rather more essentially its lyricism and musical spark.


In magnifying their sound they’ve diluted the idiosyncrasies that set them apart from every other five-piece rock band. Gone are those lyrical hooks that caught quicker than fire and the riffs that were instantly recognisable.

There’s some nice power to be found here and there, especially for fans of borderline emo music from the 2000’s, but with the lack of any great melodic hooks, there’s nothing too memorable or noteworthy. My Score: 104/180 (Okay) = 58/100

Night people equipped with all the cliches of mainstream rock, moving alone because nobody really needs them.

Cock rock that borrows the worst elements from Nickelback, Daughtry, Matchbox Twenty, Creed, and the like, there are only a few moments of brief instrumental interest to keep this from boring the listener into hysterics.
