"Neither the Klaxons-style second-album catastrophe that seemed likely, nor the step forward into pop greatness that once seemed possible. It's fun, but not a lot to show for four years' work. If the duo wants to live up to that initial promise, they will need to up their game and their work-rate."

"Rather more of a mish-mash of different ideas that have varying success rates... The variety of styles shows potential avenues for The Ting Tings to amble down. But, even after the painfully slow gestation of this record, they still seem undecided on which one to take."

"Much of the album either grates or bores... You have to wonder what they've exactly been doing during these years. As a result, we'd rather be anywhere than nowhere."
