Some reviews...

"These Dubliners are the masters of gentle, wistful songs and lush soundscapes." - OK Magazine

"Buy it. The ghost of Chet Baker meets the ghost of Kurt Cobain on a sleepover at Burt Bacharach's ranch." - Evening Herald

"When they got to the crossroads with the sign reading 'comfortable mediocrity' one way and 'awkward brilliance' the other, Dublin's The Dudley Corporation are one of those rare bands who've chosen the latter" - Rock Sound

"they can balance anarchy and airplay, enhancing rhythmic rupture and emotional impact by slowing down and loosening up." - Irish Times

"The Dudley Corporation are arguably making the most compelling music in Ireland at the minute. Captivating and brilliant in equal measure" - Alternative Ulster

"fourteen more reasons to fall in love with the Dudley Corporation" - Hot Press

"Complex, edgy, stop-start rushes without becoming too convoluted to jettison their tunes. Super-smart stuff." - Irish Times

"It's been such a long time since a band has made a sound half as exciting as this. Only The Strokes have made a record as instantaneously thrilling in 2001." - Limerick Leader

“toe-tapping melodies, great vocal harmonies and crystal clear guitars” - Record Collector, UK

"It is a John Cusack of a rock album: the songs full of a robust, boyish energy, an I-can't-stop-myself hyperactivity, a tremendous intelligence and a tendency to go off without any notice on fantastic, mind-boggling tangents.” - Hot Press, Ireland
