CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

Virtually every song on Up the Bracket is chock-full of the same kind of bouncy, aggressive guitars, expressive, economic drums, and irresistible hooks that made the Strokes' debut almost too catchy for the band's credibility.

Pitchfork
Like The Clash before them, The Libertines draw primarily from decades of rock tradition-- blues, dub, a healthy whiff of the English countryside, and a few gorgeous rock riffs straight from the brainstem of Chuck Berry-- and fuse them into an unruly and triumphant monster of an album.

Rolling Stone
Eventually every song will kick in from a slightly different angle, including faux folk and cracked ballad.

The british version of garage rock. Full of rage, resentment, swag and a very peculiar kind of arrogance.
This is the product of a group of people with something to say, and the chance to do so.
A collection of drunk anthems for the mob

At last, a true rock'n'roll album out of modern Britain.
Great tunes, simple ahd so addictive like an ambush for the initiated.
