Reception[edit]

Reviews for Shine have been mixed to positive. Emily Coulter of Metal Temple gave the album a 5/10, with criticisms aimed at songs Mountain Made of Stone and War Child. However, she was more positive towards other tracks, most notably Run Run, which she said was "easily one of the best tracks from Shine."[10] Simon McMurdo of The Sonic Reverie also had mixed feelings, feeling the album paled when compared to Indica’s previous release, A Way Away, and said the album was "a struggle to get through as a whole." He stated the album wasn’t awful, but the songs didn’t "gel together." He did praise A Definite Maybe, calling it "Eurovision pop rock at its best."[11] Ant May of Planet Mosh was more positive, giving the album a 4/5, and saying the album was "A great album that fans of the band will love."[12]
