NME October 19 1996"Brett Anderson is a rock star. The way he holds himself, the way he talks, the sheer class he exudes. Somehow he has more natural charisma than any of your Liams, Damons, and Jarvises. At the very least, even when he’s playing it down, he is the three-dimensional version of the caricature he sketches on ‘Filmstar’ on the new album. The others are there to form an elegant circle around him. The thin white duke and his thin black droogs."
