‘…an accomplished comeback…With its best songs vividly referencing the 70s South London landscape of Difford and Tilbrook’s youth ‘Cradle To The Grave’ is frequently nostalgic, yet it’s largely upbeat and mostly eminently radio-friendly. The balmy country-flavoured Happy Days and stomping, soul-tinged titular song are surely destined to become live favourites, while affecting teenage rites of passage tales such as Honeytrap and the porn-mag-related Haywire eloquently demonstrate why Difford still hits the spots lesser lyricists can’t reach.’

RECORD COLLECTOR Oct ‘15RecordCollectorOct15

“Well, well: Messrs Difford and Tilbrook reunited as writing partners for the first time this century, as if they’d never been apart (though they’re still, obviously moving in parallel octaves). The songs are as multi-syllabic as ever, but the sound is more intimate than you might recall: drier, warmer….’Genial’ barely covers it…” 4*

“…this is one of the best albums Squeeze have ever released – and that’s saying something…the opening title track presents a joyful tumble of defiance and tub-thumping happiness. Blissful arrangements, as on funky pouting Nirvana, ensure a clear-eyed masterclass celebrating an exalted life well lived. Tremendous.” 5*


daily mirror


“…a nostalgic look at a London adolescence revolving around pubs, cafes, school and football…Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook have a rich pedigree, and these pithy tunes echo the classic pop of Up The Junction and Cool For Cats.” 4*

DAILY MAIL 2.10.15

daily mail


“Squeeze always had a talent for putting familiar, everyday vignettes to bittersweet melodies…the album’s provincial modesty is at the heart of its charm and Difford’s knack for writing about subjects rarely troubled by pop…is at the heart of what makes Squeeze unique.”

THE TIMES 2.10.15


“…few songwriters alive can touch them for narrative detail and emotional insight. Expect ten songs of warmly nostalgic, melodic guitar-pop. It is, like the book and the show, an unqualified joy.” 5*

METRO 30.9.15


‘…an upbeat, nostalgic collection about growing up in London in the Sixties and Seventies, full of pithy observations of school, football, family life and first love set to flowing melodies and arrangements…’

“Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford’s songs brim with rear-view affection for hormones and teenage thrills, and there’s purpose and sunny verve.”


Mail on Sunday

‘Squeeze were the post-punk Kinks…they deserve a similar reputation as writers of top drawer narrative song….always teamed a hallmark dry wit with a McCartneyesque tunefulness…the album revisits youthful indiscretion with more than simply nostalgia.’


guardian guide

‘Deptford Beatles’ Danny Baker Dozen….these 12 tracks confirm Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook’s melodic talents.’

UNCUT Oct ‘15


‘…Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook(‘s)…creative relationship remains a potent one. The title track is classic Squeeze, witty and trenchant with Tilbrook’s mobile verse melody and a real earworm of a chorus.’

MOJO Oct ‘15


“That ‘greatest hits’ feel was emphasised by the soundtrack… with a real gem for the title track, a new song by Squeeze, who were touted long ago by Baker and his music journalist mates as ‘the next Beatles’.”
