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.

There are times when it feels sporadic and fragmented – with so many different elements crammed in to each track – but ultimately, it is the sound of a band pushing themselves further than they’ve ever gone before.

Exclaim!

For fans of the group, this will all seem like a fairly logical progression, and a well-executed one at that.

DIY

Bold, experimental, and an absolute delight, Bombay Bicycle Club cycle the road less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.

Drowned in Sound

Unlike previous records, Jack Steadman’s luscious vocals take the backseat throughout. So Long, See You Tomorrow is all about the beats, you see.

NME

After years of chopping and changing, Bombay Bicycle Club have finally found an iteration worth sticking with.

A solid pop album, that’s unconventional at the surface, yet retains a lot of catchy rhythms and melodies nonetheless. But more often that not I find a lot of the songs to take a little while to get going, but when they do, they’re utterly gorgeous.

Standout: Overdone
Favs: Whenever; Wherever, Come to, Luna, Eyes off you

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
