The Great Western Review - Liverpool Daily Post - ★★★★☆
THE Manic Street Preachers' singer has taken the opportunity from the band's current break to create an album on his own. The result is surprisingly good. Better in fact than a lot of the recent output from the band. It's heroic in its attempts to recreate some of the energy that made the Manics so exciting. It may be a slightly thoughtful rock album with its fair share of introspection, but rather than a tentative approach, or off-the-wall experimentation, Bradfield has shown that he is a driving force all on his own.
