“…if you like your life soundtrack to be intelligent, wistful and with a literary bent, then this just could be the album for you” Penny Black Music

“…a kooky mixture of downbeat bedroom musings and  existential wondering that makes for a sweetly melancholic listen…Those Unfortunates lovingly craft an amiable jangle-folk album that may wear its influence on its sleeve, but does it with such a warm charm that the results are hard to argue with” GIGSoup

“Recorded live in a borrowed Norfolk cottage over two weeks in the chronological order they were written… Nothing Isn’t Beautiful is a charming narrative of a small but meaningful life.” Shindig

“If anyone wonders why there haven’t been more posts lately, blame Those Unfortunates, as I keep reaching for their album… although I wrote this feature without the use of any digital emoticons, the look on my face in the mirror after listening to Nothing Isn’t Beautiful may constitute an organic emoticon.  I’ll have to live with that.” When You Motor Away

“Those Unfortunates are ANOTHER of my new favourite bands this year, and their new album Nothing Isn’t Beautiful is ANOTHER of my absolute favourites of the year so far. The London band make really beautiful indiepop songs combined with amazing storytelling. This is their debut album, and it’s a really strong one. Oh, how I love these songs!” Eardrums Music

“This is something that’s brilliantly gentle and wistful”  Jon Hillcock – BBC 6 Music
