Pitchfork wrote: “The Kooks’ keen grasp of the banal isn’t the only factor keeping them from a distinct personality. Between bouncy Britpop, angst-ridden acoustic anthems, red-light skanking, “Hounds of Love” oh-oh harmonies, and the Delta blues intro to “Time Awaits”, it’s not clear the Kooks know who they want to be when they grow up yet.’ Full review here. Score: 6/10

Turn Up The Volume: Too calculated and commerce-orientated boys band songs.
But hey, it sold more than 2 million copies and peaked at #2 on the UK Charts, so
they pleased a mass of fans (mostly young girls).

Deluxe Edition features the original album remastered and thirteen previously unreleased tracks on all formats. Order info here.
