“Lanterns On The Lake’s fifth album arrives with wind-in-your-hair exhilaration... Singer Hazel Wilde seems to have plugged into a new power supply – one strung between Natalie Merchant and Matt Berninger – while the drumming of Radiohead’s Philip Selway cranks the internal pressure higher.” MOJO – 4 stars ****

 

“Assured art-rockers bristle with brilliance... Hazel Wilde’s magnificent voice conveys their imploding-world lyrics with effective dynamic fluctuations. From the tense, vivid opener ‘The Likes Of Us’ to the restraint revving up to a roar of ‘Thumb Of War’, they’re laudably aiming for the stars, seeking hope among modern life’s rubble.” Record Collector – 4 stars ****

 

“Singer Hazel Wilde sets the tone on overwhelming opener ‘The Likes Of Us’, a gorgeous, shimmering wall of sound topped by her emphatic delivery... There’s a real confidence and ambition as the album progresses... These Lanterns are shining bright.” The Sun – 5 stars *****

 

“The Newcastle dramatists have mutated. With Radiohead’s Philip Selway on drums they’re bigger and fleshier... A tasteful transition.” PROG

 

“An elegant record… Versions Of Us is a majestic career peak record from a band that has evolved constantly over more than a decade” Louder Than War

 

Versions Of Us is another upward step in the band’s trajectory. Opening track ‘The Likes Of Us’ builds beautifully, showcasing one of Wilde’s most powerful vocals… Tracks like the propulsive ‘Real Life’ seem huge and all-encompassing, as if they could be played in arenas or stadiums. It’s one of the best things the band have ever done.” MusicOMH – 9/10
