Professional Reviews

Mojo (Publisher)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "Intelligent, funny, heartbreaking alt-rock, Hornby lyrics, music and vocals by Folds....An album of 11 tiny novels that play themselves."

Clash (magazine)
- "Sublime strings from legendary Bowie arranger Paul Buckmaster provide a charming gloss, while 'Your Dogs' is an alarmingly accurate rendering of early Elvis Costello."

Record Collector (magazine)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "Hornby spins loose vignettes into rich narratives....The majority of the album compares favourably with Folds' best work and represents a compelling return to form..."
