Critical receptionEdit

The Guardian called Our Aim Is to Satisfy the band's best album to date, writing that they intersperse "moody, atmospheric instrumentals with funkier, soulful vocal tracks to make a collection that flows smoothly from beginning to end, a soundtrack for urban Britain that suggests a more revved-up Massive Attack."[6]
