AllMusic Review by

Death of a Minor TV Celebrity is the album where the Candyskins put all the pieces together, coming up with a consistent set of songs and sharp production that delivers on the promise hinted at by earlier efforts. Opening with the infectious, horn-powered "Feed It," the record suggests the majestic, psychedelic sound perfected by fellow Oxford denizens Supergrass on their In It for the Money album; standouts like the raucous "It's a Sign" and the dramatic title cut are simply among the best songs the Candyskins have ever recorded, and even the lesser tracks succeed on energy alone.
