NME said: “‘The Remote Part’ is a bold, bright, broken and bitter beast that sees the spanking new Top Ten-shagging Idlewild burst out of their student-sheep’s clothing and rip the throat out of Coldplay. It’s Indie’s Revenge, it’s every ounce of Idlewild‘s potential fulfilled at once and it’s quite good.” Score: 4.5/5.

TUTV: Their best work to my trained ears. Balanced between catchy dream-away
pop and amplified rock rippers. Top. And American English is a diamond of a single.
