GoodBooks album out on iTunes UK today

With Control being released on Monday, album reviews have been rife. And actually, they've all been very complimentary. Here are some of our favourites...

"A triumphant debut from start to finish, showcasing a host of ideas that should see GoodBooks rise to the top of the indie hounds" - Gigwise, 4.5/5

"This album is a stunning debut from an even more stunning band. GoodBooks are the future of indie-Pop; cherish them" - Contact Music, 9/10

"Control is a classic, intoxicating. irresistible" - NME, 7/10

"A succession of great singles, set them apart from most of the pale-indie-boy competition.. wonderful songs." - The Sunday Times

"Orange Juice or Talking Heads beefed up for maximum dancefloor impact. executed to particularly winning effect." - The Guardian

"This mash between traditional old school and fuzzy post-Bloc Party fuses illustriously to deliver a sparkling album of beauty" - Disorder, 7/10

"GoodBooks are one of the best new bands in Britain. Their songs are fresh, chaotic but meticulously executed to create a sound not only for the here and now, but a sound for the future. Whether it's still raining, or the sun finally decides to make an appearance, make sure you take the time to add 'Control' to your life" - Control Yourself, 8.5/10

"Goodbooks' desire to beat against the current makes their debut album all the the more unusual - and all the more exciting" - Music OMH, 4/5
