100% Soundblab One of the most important contemporary punk bands — if not the most important one — is by no means "punk" in the conventional sense.
90% Pop Matters Sleaford Mods' astonishing and deceptively subtle Eton Alive provides plenty of food for thought to counter the bread and circuses on offer during a time of political austerity.
83% Nöjesguiden Sleaford Mods har talat om att de blir allt popigare, och inför det här albumet velat referera till Luther Vandross och Drake.
80% The Guardian
80% The Skinny Each step feels measured, unhurried, with Sleaford Mods choosing each word, each sound for maximum impact.
80% Exclaim! Music In almost a decade of crippling austerity, and in the midst of democratic collapse in Britain, Sleaford Mods are one of the most important political acts in the world, whether they like it or not.
80% New Musical Express And album five makes Sleaford Mods funny againSleaford Mods are taking the piss, and they’re very good it.
80% Loud & Quiet Did Sleaford Mods put a hex on the nation to make Britain increasingly resemble something from the darkest reach of Williamson’s imagination?If you take the arrival of Andrew Fearn for the album ‘Austerity Dogs’ as the legitimate starting point for Sleaford Mods (Williamson had released solo recordings under the name, but Fearn’s beats proved transformative to their sound and subsequent success), ‘Eton Alive’ is the group’s fifth studio album proper – a prolific run punctuated by no less than four EPs.
80% Record Collector
70% Under the Radar Magazine Despite their occasional protestations that they aren't necessarily a political band, the former Labour Party member Williamson (ousted in 2016 for criticizing an MP on twitter for Christ's sake) still sounds politically and socially charged.
67% Svenska Dagbladet
55% The Line of Best Fit When you consider the sheer number of songs that Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearn have penned over the years as Sleaford Mods, it’s an arrestingly large body of work.
50% Gaffa (Sweden) Det är förvånande att ett självuttalat politiskt band som Sleaford Mods drar åt det här hållet.
