“Who else would have the temerity to write a track about major commuting delays?” – Planet Rock
“An expletive-laden blast of rant-rock which will resonate with frustrated commuters everywhere’ – Q Magazine
“Focuses its anger on the crumbling transport infrastructure of this once-great nation… with a lyric that lambasts the widely-loathed, strife-torn rail franchise. ‘It’s a journey into pure despair/There are fucking arseholes everywhere!’ Hawkins trills winningly.” – Classic Rock
