“what Prince and Phoenix might have got up to had they hung out together in a tin-plated North London studio”  Bob Stanley on Jack Adaptor (debut album) 

“J’Accuse! is turning out to be something rather special” Andrew Collins on J'Accuse!, selected as one of his '50 Albums Of 2014' (which only consisted of 12 albums) 

"an album of adroit pop charm" MOJO on J'Accuse! 

“Wave after wave of pleasure. I can’t wait to spin it again” Miles Hunt on Jack Adaptor 

"full of smart pop music... maybe this, their sixth album, will announce them to a wider audience" Scottish Daily Express on J'Accuse! 

"Jack Adaptor... will captivate you without question" Bernd Seidel (Intro, Germany) 

“Jack Adaptor write the chronicles of rock 'n' roll” Everybody Wants To Be Nameless, France 

“Fans of Ween should buy this” XL Magazine, Netherlands 

"Blitz-intelligent songwriting" Robert Rotifer (FM 4, Austria) 

“An ace album of cutesy beats to blow away the cobwebs of evil” Vic McGlynn on Jack Adaptor 

"If you can't find anything to enjoy on J'Accuse!, you're not listening carefully enough" Backseat Mafia on J'Accuse! 

“J’accuse is an album, and by extension Jack Adaptor are a band, not overtly chasing love or popularity at any cost. It is art and is a welcome reminder of an age when our entertainers were ARTISTS. J’Accuse (great title in light of all this) is intelligent pop music with suss which maintains that there is still something of worth to be done with that form of expression. In doing so, it leaves a question hanging in the air; why is no-one else doing this? Jack Adaptor, take a bow”. Phillip Thompson Louder Than War magazine
