Dirty Pretty Things
Waterloo to Anywhere
Universal

"Big expectations sit uncomfortably on Waterloo to Anywhere. It doesn't sound like a masterpiece; then again, it does nothing to damage its maker's reputation, which is more than you can say for [Pete] Doherty's post-Libertines efforts. (The Guardian)

"Welcome to part two of the post-Libertines docudrama ... [Carl] Barat retains the characteristically jolly bounce in his step, acrid one-liners and vengeful, ambitious anthems pepper this otherwise velvety, matter-of-course effort." (Pitchfork)

"Compared to Doherty, Barat's survivable habits and lyrical-if unmagical-rock 'n' roll may prove he has made, once again, wiser choices than his old sparring partner." (Uncut)

"The message is loud and clear: Despite having seen his old band ripped apart and his dreams of Arcadia hijacked, Carl still isn't prepared to compromise or sweep the past under the carpet ... smart, savvy, insanely resilient: Waterloo to Anywhere is just the ticket. (NME)
