CRITIC REVIEWS

NME

‘Great Divide’ is a love letter to the power of music itself; earnest, yes, but as heart-warming a rock record as it's possible to imagine.

The Line of Best Fit

Great Divide is a definite step up from the flab of Free, blowing out its cheeks impressively hard at first but it does run out of puff all too quickly.

Angst-rock is promised, but power-pop is ultimately delivered.

The Guardian
Something of a cross between Biffy Clyro and Bon Jovi, the Twins are not concerned by a barrow-load of cliches as they aim for the man in the back row.
50
Clash
Lyrics like “I’ll stay young to be saved” (‘Be A Kid’) come across as self-indulgent and frontman Sam McTrusty’s reedy vocals get lost in menacing tracks like ‘I Am An Animal’.

Drowned in Sound
I only wish that they had given us something with a little more substance rather than the bland mess we’ve been left with.

There is nothing worthwhile being brought to the table here, other than occasional cringes.
