"Hugh je odlučio da pokaže da je i njegova minimalistička a maštovita gitara bila deo magije. Pa, dokazao je. Nove verzije (uglavnom) imaju smisla, a i Hugh – vlasnik jednog od najlepših vokala u istoriji britanske rok muzike – pevao je dovoljno dobro da oživi duh Davitelja iz Gildforda."
"The Strangalers made their name by playing every fucked up town in the UK that the rest of the bands didn’t dare tread, it honed their craft to perfection and also built them up a grass roots following that has never left them and got them through the bad years and is the foundation of where they are now."
"Jet Black is still recovering from illness and the stand-in, Jim McAuley, is excellent. Actually, the entire band is excellent, individually and collectively, and I am struck by how well they play now compared to the 1970s."

"... it was fantastic to hear the superb musicianship of Black, JJ Burnel, Dave Greenfield and Baz Warne and great to see that they all seemed to be enjoying themselves just as much as the audience were."
