"An embarrassment of musical riches... a perfect late curio of 2010." 8/10 NME

"Sheer pop-hook majesty and killer choruses... pure inspiration" - Sunday Times ****

"An eccentric Yorkshireman who deserves to be considered the peer of fellow electro-melodicists Fuck Buttons and Animal Collective" - **** MOJO

"The melodies are generous, the emotions writ large, and the arrangements thrilling." - Word

"There's an appealing spirit of English eccentricity to James Mabbett's second album... it channels influences as far-flung as Brian Wilson, Balearic house and space rock." - The Observer

"Swirling atmospheric backdrops take you on bizarre aural trips... an infectiously entertaining, from-the-heart album" - Artrocker

"Christiania is faultless." - (Recommended Album) The Line Of Best Fit

"It's not often that an album like this comes along... a masterpiece." - ***** God Is In The TV

"An inarguably majestic affair" - **** The Big Issue

"An off-kilter trip-pop wonder, recalling the likes of Panda Bear and Dan Deacon." - Clash

"Life and vivacity flows through the album... stunning." - 8/10 Drowned In Sound

"Nine songs of remarkable breadth and magnitude...Napoleon IIIrd is rightly celebrated as one of the most distinctive and intriguing contemporary artists." - High Voltage

"Christiania's dense pop productions merit further investigation and reveal a perverse intelligence at work." - Stool Pigeon

"A true master of the kind of outsider pop that's created for bespectacled youths turned off by chart hits." - Loud & Quiet

"Napoleon IIIrd sweats undiluted awesome power. The kind of performance that makes you want to call everyone you care about and tell them they should be here to see it." - The Fly
