Alternative Press (8/96, p.80) - 4 (out of 5) - "...McAlmont's voice, sweet '70s soul with a smattering of Sly Family Stoning thrown in, is the overwhelming sound of this album; Butler plays virtually all the other instruments, but they're largely understated, backwash soundtracks which complement rather than complicate..."
Clash (magazine) - "Achingly soulful laments like 'Although' and 'Tonight' perfectly demonstrate the very conscious decision to try and avoid an obvious indie sound..."
