★☆☆☆☆ The Ting Tings are back after two years of not even making a ripple in the big pond that is the music industry, and to be honest, I can’t say this album has made any more of an impact. Super Critical follows the experimental, and extremely difficult second album Sounds From Nowheresville that was released back in 2012. Having resided in Ibiza, thinking they would get nothing done, they in fact managed to create their third record, which comes in at just over 30 minutes long. Super Critical is catchy, but it doesn’t quite catch on. I’m afraid to say that this record doesn’t exactly reignite the excitement of their ‘That’s Not My Name’ days. Yes, that song it extremely annoying, but it got The Ting Tings out there, with people singing it and making reference to it on a daily basis - they were a hype band with massive promise.
