Posted by an anonymous person in the thread Official reviews for California Son:

The first review is out!

It's from Uncut. Can't quite see the score here but it's pretty positive and reads like a 7 or 8/10.
Interestingly, I think Uncut published the first review of Low in High School with a damning score (possibly 5/10) and the conclusion that it was his worst since Kill Uncle.
Please add other reviews to this thread (although there probably won't be many for another few 3 or 4 weeks).

A huge slice of subjectivity with a comment on each track from 72->1.

haven’t seen most of these photos before and it’s all very atmospheric with the soundcheck too. there’s a description on the video explaining the story behind them.

I'm certain the person running that page frequents here, but wouldn't mind these being reproduced here for discussion as they are interesting to say the least.
Also, credit to Gary Gittings for sharing them there - I hope his caps lock button gets fixed soon :)

Hopefully, the FB crappy image compression doesn't ruin them.
