CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

Ultimately, Thick as Thieves plays like a heartfelt love letter to Temper Trap's fans who have stuck with them since Conditions.

FasterLouder

These songs are meant for big audiences, for big moments, for the festival crowds that will scream the lyrics back at them. This is rock at its most blinding.

PopMatters

What made U2’s approach so singular was their ability to forge vast psychogeographic landscapes ... from a few concentrated elements ... The Temper Trap strive to create similar landscapes throughout Thick As Thieves and, while they’re not always successful, they manage to fashion a few moments of sublime vastness.

Pitchfork

It’s easy to be cynical about a record like this, but the Temper Trap are nothing but not earnest; Thick as Thieves never comes off as anything but the exact record the band wants to make, which just happens to fit squarely into alt-rock trends.

Clash

There’s enough Coldplays in the world TTT - focus on what makes you special, as this is sadly shocking.

That falsetto is so annoying... I'm sorry if I offend anybody with my review but this was one of the most predictable and boring releases of this year. Maybe their intentions weren't to sound like sellouts, however, at the end that's all that they give in all tracks. What a waste of time.

Fav tracks: Fall Together, Riverina.
Least fav tracks: What If I'm Wrong.
