A.V. Club

If there’s a drawback to the album, it’s that there aren’t many signs of growth musically.

Drowned in Sound

It might sound strange to criticise a record for having a cohesive sound throughout, but without those more startling moments, Smart Flesh can pass you by in parts.


The problem here is that all these competing styles result in a bit of a lack in a distinctive voice for the band.

No Ripcord

It’s pretty, but it lacks any melodic inventiveness to really hook you in and make you feel what they’re feeling.
