Uncut Magazine wrote: “In many ways, ‘Distractions’ is an enigma.
In years to come, we may look back on this record as transitional, or a
product of its times. But to hear a band of this vintage still listening, and
responding, to their instincts is a joy in itself.” Score: 8/10.
Turn Up The Volume: These moody troubadours, led by midnight crooner
Stuart A. Staples, keep on exploring the human psyche with melancholic musings
with a slightly different sound as we are used to. Opening track Man Alone (Can’t
Stop The Fadin’) is a masterly 11-minute trip.
