"Scottish trio become contenders on brilliant second album" - 4/5 Kerrang!
displays "...songwriting chops that are matures beyond their relatively young years. All that early promise they showed? Welcome to Deliveryville, population them. - 8/10 Rock Sound
The Xcerts have outdone themselves. This is a record that bands strive their whole careers to write and they’ve gone and done it on the second attempt. Marvellous. - 5/5 Punktastic
"...comeback of the year?" - 5/5 Big Cheese
