AllMusic Review by

Like the Divine Comedy and My Life Story, Simon Warner is indebted to the sweeping, cinematic orchestrated pop of Scott Walker. The difference is, Warner doesn't have the self-conscious irony that plagues Neil Hannon or the weak songwriting that hampers Jake Shillingford. Instead, he has a lyrical and musical grace that makes his debut Waiting Rooms a wonderful record, filled with grandiose melancholy and doomed romanticism.
