*Mojo – 4/5 
 
*Vive le Rock 9/10
 
*Another Fall From Grace is a striking reminder of The Mission’s strengths. For a band celebrating their 30th anniversary, it shows there’s still plenty of life left in them yet. 
5/5 Smells Like Infinite Sadness
 
 
*Wayne Hussey has suffered for his art to record this album. But he’s produced
probably the best sounding Mission album yet. 
 
* A pretty dramatic and well-crafted album that will sit well against their back
catalogue and will allow you to be taken again into their world. 
9/10 Moshville
 
*‘Another Fall From Grace’ is a deeply satisfying record full of great touches 9/10 Hardpressed
