Received my copy yesterday after pre-ordering it from their website. I opted for the 2CD deluxe edition, the second disc features the Disclosure track.

It's a brilliant album, if you've liked everything you've heard so far you'll love it. The title track is amazing, it's up there with Wasting My Young Years and Strong for me.

It is a great debut! It takes a while to get going but there are some phenomenal moments on here!

Metal & Dust in particular shows what they are capable of, the hook is magnificent and the trip-hop breakdown at the end is one of my favourite musical moments of the year. I hope in the future they will explore some more uptempo tracks.

Exciting band!

Apparently 'If You Wait' is is one of the faves to win the Mercury prize.

It's a good debut album. It's not all golden but overall it's impressive. I think it was wise to keep the music quite minimal so her voice is the focus as that's the big selling point imo. Favourite tracks for me are the obvious ones; Wasting My Young Years and Strong .

They're brilliant. Saw them at Bestival this weekend, took the roof off.

I love this album so much, I've hardly stopped listening to it. I really like the title track If You Wait.

Beautiful album. Nice to see the trip hop sound coming back as I've always been a big fan of that sound.
