About this deal

Additional peaks include: 194 in Belgium's Flanders region, [12] 139 in France's French Top Album Physiques chart, [13] 95 in Germany, [14] 58 in Ireland, [15] and 45 in Switzerland. The aptly named ‘Lost’ pairs a generous helping of synthetic, nu-disco violin with a ‘Jolene’-style bassline, and yet still manages to sound utterly joyless. out of 5 stars, with critic Matt Collar writing that "it lacks some of the sincerity and lyricism that made 2017's Hearts That Strain such a welcome surprise", but balances Bugg's musical influences and is "the culmination of Bugg's rise to mainstream success". El Hunt of NME gave this album 2 out of 5 stars, writing that "Bugg has struggled to replicate [the] raw charm" of his earliest work and criticizes the artist's shift toward pop music by stating that these songs "possesses about as much pizazz as a slightly feeble party popper". His laid-back gritty swagger and striking yet nonchalant image have seen him fuse his music and style, collaborating with the likes of Saint Laurent and Burberry on campaigns.

Writing for Clash Music, Finlay Holden scored this release a 7 out of 10, stating that "sonic experimentation breathes fresh life and energy into Bugg’s discography, resulting in an intoxicating LP cementing his strongest offerings since his glorious debut". The songs on Saturday Night, Sunday Morning are the kind you could easily see getting placed in the background of TV shows or used in commercials. In Hot Press, Lucy O'Toole scored Saturday Night, Sunday Morning a 6 out of 10, ending her review, "while there's no doubt that the Nottingham star is having plenty of fun here – and inviting us to do the same – there are surely bolder adventures on Bugg's horizon". It rankles when this album was put together by a team best known for the music he claims to despise. The tracklisting will feature previous singles All I Need and Kiss Like The Sun alongside a new single coming next month.years-old and with 4 albums and numerous hit singles to his name, Jake Bugg has a seasoned knowledge beyond his young years, which he couples with a refreshing wry sense of humour.

Saturday Night, Sunday Morning is a cohesive enough follow-up, but Bugg still seems conflicted about the sound that first propelled him into the spotlight. Saturday Night, Sunday Morning reached third place on the UK Albums Chart [10] and fourth place in Scotland. Powered by a scrappy urgency, he sang of running around his Clifton suburb with a lit joint, and his mixed feelings about having escaped it; though he wore his indie-folk influences on his sleeve, it was a charismatic affair. According to the review aggregator Metacritic, Saturday Night, Sunday Morning received "mixed or average reviews" based on a weighted average score of 56 out of 100 from four critic scores. Both singles marked the beginning of a new start in Jake’s musical career since signing to RCA Records, alongside his tracks and short films Rabbit Hole and Saviours of the City released last year.The problem is, based on ‘Saturday Night, Sunday Morning’ – a muddled album that claims to love pop, but seems thoroughly averse to having any kind of fun – it seems he’s mostly the former.

Writing for Gigwise, Kieran Macadie rated this release 8 out of 10 stars, writing that it displays Bugg's "iconic heartfelt lyricism and masterful guitar playing".The strongest tracks on ‘Saturday Night, Sunday Morning’ are the simplest – essentially a hulking, brute-force pop-rock track, ‘Screaming’ sounds custom-written to go off live, while ‘Downtown’ combines combines Bugg’s ear for a ballad with subtle orchestral arrangements. Unfortunately, ‘Saturday Night, Sunday Morning’ possesses about as much pizazz as a slightly feeble party popper.

With 4 albums and numerous hit singles to his name, Jake Bugg has a seasoned knowledge beyond his young years, which he couples with a refreshing wry sense of humour.Regardless of what you think of the Nottingham musician – who first rose to prominence in Glastonbury’s unsigned talent competition back in 2011 – there’s no denying that his self-titled 2012 debut felt cohesive and assured. Taken on their own, these are fine songs and Bugg's reedy alto is showcased to nice effect throughout. Singles All I Need and Kiss Like The Sun marked the beginning of a new start in Jake’s musical career since signing to RCA Records, alongside his tracks and short films Rabbit Hole and Saviours of the City released last year.
