8/10 Jack Customer review, 5th January 2018
Devoto and company originally intended this material to be released as a series of five singles (A and B sides) and not as an album (before the record label nixed the idea), so the slightly brighter, more accessible arrangements than those that the band deployed on Secondhand Daylight or Real Life may have reflected that. This is one of those albums, like Elvis Costello's first, or The Pretenders debut, that plays like it's already a greatest hits package, with "Song from Under the Floorboards" a standout. A monumental achievement, musically and lyrically.
