Consumer Guide Reviews:

What We Have Become [Virgin EMI, 2014]
To my surprise--Heaton is a genius who's been warehousing songs for years, Abbott his tartest opposite number--something about the Beautiful South concept (moment?) (band?) upped his game and I wish they'd somehow stuck it out ("I Am Not a Muse," "When I Get Back to Blighty") ***
