Roddy Hart, BBC Scotland ‘Record of Note’ "About as assured and confident as a power pop record could ever be… a triumphant return"
John M. Borak, Goldmine Magazine - Record of the year "Thick guitars, splendid harmonies, and melodies that refuse to let go are the order of the day...it’s damned near perfect."
Powerpopaholic.com “It’s safe to say that this is one of the best albums of the year 9/10”
Something Else! "Tingling and trembling with style and substance, Why Don’t They Teach Heartbreak at School? is a power-pop epic."
Star Of The Show EP, NME “… Aerial's EP is too cheeky and irritating to dislike. For crying out loud, 'Star Of The Show' features deranged handclapping and whooping! Simply, it's the sound of a band who haven't thought about concepts, marketing strategies and corporate sweet-talking. And it's a blast of fresh air no matter what you think of the tunes. Don't feel bad about remembering music can sometimes be this stupidly joyous.“
Star Of The Show EP, Melody Maker “Sunny harmonies and a Suzi Quattro attitude 4/5”
BBC Radio 1 Session in Scotland “…music served enthusiastically as well as efficiently, Aerial are lively, keen and raring to go…”
