AllMusic says: “On his fifth studio album British singer/songwriter Jake Bugg embraces
a robust, mainstream pop/rock vibe that still retains some of his vintage inspirations… Undoubtedly, it’s the culmination of Bugg’s rise to mainstream success. Whether it works
for you or not, it’s an undeniable achievement.”
Full review here. Score: 3.5/5.

Turn Up The Volume: After his blitz start back in 2012 with his masterful self-titled
debut album Bugg lost direction, not really knowing – along with the label’s crushing pressure – what his future would sound like. It led to some mediocre LPs. With this
new one he combines a bit of everything from the past, but with more of an emphasis
on upbeat pop tunes than singer/songwriter meditations. It works, but not all the time.

Key tracks: Kiss Like The Sun / Downtown / Lonely Hours / Maybe It’s Today

Singles/clips: Downtown / Lost
