"Riff is the key word for Idle Crooks. All the tracks start with an instantly catchy riff and waste no time in developing/exploding before one gets too comfortable. That explosive vibe, courtesy of Adam Hall’s frantic drumming, carries weight and is frequently found across the four tracks. ‘Strangers Greed’, a ballad in comparison to the raw delivery of the other tracks (most notably the closer ‘Witchcraft’). The pacing of the EP, aided by melodic breaks accompanied by Hurn’s crooning voice, is perfectly executed and lends itself to the expansive and filled out sound. For only a four song EP, it’s staggering how much the Crooks squeeze in. Riff after riff, drum fill after technical drum fill, crash after crash, you’re pulled along by the meaty hook they’ve tossed." - Bitter Sweet Symphonies 2017
