Erratic and unrefined.
24th January 2020
To bemoan their seventh LP for the confused stinker that it is is not an easy pop, but a real lament for a band that used to be so much more.
26th July 2019
A little more humour on Mini Mansions’ third, and they might’ve been able to pull it off.

28th June 2019
Think Imagine Dragons in leather jackets and ripped jeans, if you will.
19th April 2019
Both over-produced and underwhelming.
5th April 2019
Sometimes, maybe you can just be a bit too clever for your own good.
22nd March 2019
Just a little too airy to land.
15th February 2019
With all the composite parts in place, what ‘Prismatic’ lacks isn’t effort, but direction.
25th January 2019
They’re back flogging another set of empty epics.

2nd March 2018
A record that could do with clawing a bit of their magic back.
9th February 2018
Not nearly as profound as it thinks it is.
15th December 2017
This charming man? It looks like these days it’s more a case of bigmouth strikes again.
17th November 2017
A frustratingly disappointing album from a writer we’ve all heard do so much better.
27th October 2017
She knows her niche inside out.
20th October 2017
It’s been done better elsewhere, and recently, too.
29th September 2017
They’ve undercut their own power by playing it safe.
15th September 2017
Buffed-up and overly layered.
Not just a quaint look back, but a lukewarm cup of twee.
4th August 2017
A moderately decent, if slightly been-done-before collection of songs, or a bit of a predictable letdown?
23rd June 2017
An album that isn’t sure what exactly it wants to be.
