CRITIC REVIEWS

80
NME

‘Sonik Kicks’ is the sound of Paul Weller growing old the only way he could – not particularly gracefully, but with no small amount of style. 

80
PopMatters

Weller has made an extremely worthy case for remaining the master of his craft.

80
Drowned in Sound

Weller seems enthusiastic, upbeat and genuinely inventive across the whole LP, with only a couple of minor missteps throughout.

A.V. Club

Next time around ... an extra round of editing might not hurt.

Pitchfork

Sonik Kicks is a good record, but it doesn't have the songwriting depth and range of its two predecessors

Throughout Sonik Kicks, it somehow feels as if the Krautrock vibe is a needless intrusion, an unnecessary welding and meshing of styles.

Purchasing Sonik Kicks from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
