CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

Free is just too derivative to have the impact the band appear to shoot for.

There's more than just a niggle that Free isn't breaking new ground. More disturbingly, the album is a wasted chance to build on Vivarium, and isn't as good as so much of the music it tries to emulate.

The Skinny
Twin Atlantic sound like every bittersweet Brit-rock band of the last few years

DIY
'Free' ought to have been a strong showcase of the bands exciting take on post-Biffy rock, yet their first album proper feels merely like a letdown of stale ideas and re-hashed riffs.

Alternative Press

It's a shame that there's so little of note on Free, because Gil Norton's production is fantastic as usual. But bless his heart, it's ultimately a wasted effort.

Not as crazy or complex as Vivarium, but all the more straight-forward fun for it.
