Observer Music Monthly - 80
Based on rating 4/5

'Let's go fucking mental,' urge the Peth, and their gonzo attitude is infectious. It doesn't hinder their cause that their defining slogan is carried by an infectious, nagging punk riff and a soaring chorus sung in the high, sly and insinuating accents of the patented Welsh pop style. Put me down for some of that menthol, sir. Formed by Super Furry Animals drummer Dafydd Ieuan along with Rhys Ifans and Welsh rock stalwarts such as Dic Deryn of Elfyn Presley, the Peth (the Thing) are presented as a pub idea or a famous actor's vanity project, but The Golden Mile is more substantial: a very well-made rock record of perfect length (about 45 minutes) and contradictory catharsis.
