Midlake’s third album – “The Courage Of Others” – was released in early February to great acclaim…

“a dose of musical magic: a slow-building, minor-chord madrigal that transports the listener back to a time when albums had the power to strengthen and heal… A classic”

The Independent on Sunday – 5 Stars ***** (CD of the Week)

“a breathtaking transformation… Sublime”

The Times – 5 Stars ***** (Album of the Week)

“An album that is like a dark cloak in which to envelop oneself… the first truly great release of the year”

The Independent – 5 Stars ***** (Album of the Week)

“Midlake are well on their way to usurping Vampire Weekend and Fleet Foxes as America’s most celebrated new rock band… This majestic album will only advance their cause”

The Daily Mail – 5 Stars ***** (Album of the Week)

“exquisitely constructed, intricately layered, beautifully played”

MOJO – 4 Stars **** (Album of the Month)

“This is bold, ambitious, captivating stuff”

Q magazine – 4 Stars ****

“The Southerners’ monumental third is a little hippy, a lot heavy”

NME – 8/10

“Imagine the romantic poets mourning climate change to a 1970’s folk-rock soundtrack and you won’t be far from The Courage of Others… it trembles with awe of sublime nature and sorrow for its destruction”

The Guardian – 4 Stars ****

“A palette of folk music colours combine to evoke a beautiful air of desolation.”

The Telegraph – 4 Stars ****

“A unique and intensely moving album.”

The Sun – 4.5/5 ****

“Midlake spin a dense and intricate web with awe-inspiring ease on their third album… a record that’s indebted to English folk music yet still wholly and uniquely their own”

The Fly – 4.5/5 ****

“The Courage of Others is a peach of a record.”

Evening Standard – 4 Stars ****

“Midlake have used the wide open spaces of their home state to nurture a singularly haunted and hypnotic music… droning chords, rolling circular harmonies and mournful guitars weave a spell.”

The Mirror – 4 Stars ****

“a lovingly crafted retro folk-rock lament”

Financial Times – 4 Stars ****

“as immersively melancholy as you can get… gorgeous”

Time Out – 4 Stars ****

“Mixing Nick Drake, Steeleye Span, Jethro Tull and even Gabriel-era Genesis with the tougher burr of Texan indie… It’s a miraculous alchemy.”

The Observer

“There’s so much beauty here… forlorn, gentle and totally absorbing.”
