Reviewing ‘Music for Men’ back in 2009, NME wrote: “For the most part, though, this is a frivolous, joyful celebration: of all love, heartbreak, sex and dancing. If the band was formed as a means of escaping the closed-mindedness of their Southern backgrounds, then this is the fruits of their emancipation. And who can deny them that?”
