CRITIC REVIEWS

70
musicOMH

There are a couple of fillers on the album, but Girl At The End Of The World is a strong, distinctive addition to the band’s work.

70
AllMusic
Between this record and its predecessor, their creativity seems to have entered a fertile new phase.

The Skinny

Girl at the End of the World is, on one level, more of the same: bulging arrangements; hefty half-hooks; Tim Booth's screwy commentary connecting somewhere to the left of immediately comprehensible. But it's also intelligent, accomplished and likeable.

60
Clash
Commendably still opting for spontaneity after all these years, the lads have whittled down some dance-tinged jams into workable songs and the result is an LP that, while unfocused, still has plenty of drive and energy.
60
Drowned in Sound

It never feels as though James are comfortable with wholly embracing something brand new and daring.

60
Under The Radar
The closing title track is a pleasant enough number but reverts to the more safe James sound, a slight disappointment after the forward-sounding songs of the late middle of the album
Purchasing Girl at the End of the World from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
