CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

Ultimately, So Long, See You Tomorrow is highly engaging, thoughtful, kaleidoscopic pop music for citizens of the world.

80
The 405

This is a record that certainly sits cosily alongside Steadman's sporadic solo endeavors, his gentle, experimental fingerprints all over the LP's swathes of warm sonic texture and lush soundscapes.

The Line of Best Fit

It’s a mighty lunge forwards for the four-piece, whose perceived m.o. largely consists of wonderful guitar-pop.

Put it down to sentimentality or me going back to this album after a three year of break of being unable to listen to it but I’m overwhelmed by this record. Every song tugs at my heartstrings and compells me to fall in love with it all over again: every line in delivered with such conviction and beauty that it’s impossible not to find the lyrics etched within my head after just a listen or two. A truly astounding record that establishes Bombay Bicycle Club as one of the UK’s ... read more

Mostly a run of the mill Indie Rock album with few songs which impressed me. However, Luna is a banger and saves the album from a 5 to a 6

My favourite record ever, to say the least. Almost every song is near perfection in here and the world that is set up is. simply puy, beautiful. Bravo
