CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Drowned in Sound

Even by their own standards, the lack of posing or pretence on this LP is startling; it’s a raw, bare-bones affair with nothing in the way of embellishment. 

80
DIY

‘24-7 Rock Star Shit’ is an unadulterated thrash through everything the Wakefield trio do so well.

musicOMH

Still raging, still full of vitriol and still full of heart. The same, but brilliant.

76
GIGsoup

The stripped-back, raw and brash sound of '24-7 Rock Star Shit' will appeal more to diehard Cribs fans but provides a refreshing and energetic album faithful to their DIY roots.

75
The Line of Best Fit

Time machines may not exist, but The Cribs’ 24-7 Rock Star Shit sure feels like a trip back to the bone-crushing rock of the 1990s.

70
AllMusic

While it doesn't feel quite as honed as some of the Cribs' other albums, 24-7 Rock Star Shit is a lot of fun, as well as more proof that the band's eternal tug of war between grit and polish still generates excitement.

64
Paste

24-7 falters when it tries anything except balls-to-the-wall.

60
The Guardian

It’s also a record that proves that the band’s reluctance to be swayed by fame and fashion can seem like stasis.

40
The Independent

It seems terminally enervated: most of these songs have a shrugging, slovenly manner, as if sulky about being sung.

24-7 Rock Star Shit features some of the band's finest tracks, but its filler definitely regresses from their previous work.

Favorite tracks: Year of Hate, In Your Place, Rainbow Ridge
