While this is a slightly better album than Wild World, it's still mediocre.

It’s enough to push Bastille towards the door with the others who’ll be on their way out soon.

As a whole body of work, there is definitely something to appreciate as it plays, adding a nice and inoffensive chapter to their catalogue.

As Avicii's final encore performance, Tim is his most intimate show yet, and a suitable send-off for a superstar.

Thanks to its concept, Doom Days is easily the group's most cohesive album yet, but as they tighten their focus, they also expand their sound.

There’s a euphoria to this record that feels so pure; through all the desperation, we begin and end with a joyous rush.

Bastille show with "Doom Days" that concept albums can still work wonderfully in today's times of streaming and playlists and make a very pleasant change from ragged records with no connection.

It’s easy to enjoy it on the surface for the racing dance-pop of Million Pieces and the skittering breakbeats of Nocturnal Creatures.

It does not stand out from the current pop mixture.

On ‘Doom Days’ they’ve managed to deftly build a conceptual world not all too different to the one we’re facing right now, and that feels like a triumph in itself.

On Doom Days Bastille falls into a sonic rut, but its best music gives us plenty of indication that this need not spell doom for what's to come for this still-young outfit.

At best a nice mediocrity.

For all its partying, Doom Days preaches unity and intimacy, and how in times like these, we as people should be coming together rather than letting our differences tear us—and the world—apart.

Bastille embrace an outlook of positivity, turning a brief blind eye, and momentarily dancing gleefully on a wasteland.

Nostalgic, melancholic, worrisome and finally joyful, ‘Doom Days’ is a production that leaves you with optimism for a better tomorrow.
