Stories garnered generally positive reception from music critics. At CCM Magazine, Matt Conner gave it four stars calling it a "confident, moving mix". Sarah Fine of New Release Tuesday rated it four stars noting that this is the "FARTHEST thing from a slump". At Indie Vision Music, Steve gave it four stars affirming the album to be "excellent". Samantha Schaumberg of Jesus Freak Hideout gave it four stars feeling that the band "brings out a well-rounded sophomore release, with a much more distinguished, original sound." At The Christian Manifesto, Lydia Akinola gave it four and a fourth of a star stating that the band "has done itself proud." Jared Johnson of Allmusic gave it four-and-a-half stars commenting on how "the upbeat collection connects with sparkling hooks" are "appealing to both faith-based and secular listeners on an emotional level." At Christian Music Review, Kevin Davis gave it a 97-percent proclaiming this to be an "excellent album" containing many "musical hooks" and "Jenny's vulnerable and sincere vocals and the extremely poignant lyrics." Simon Eden of Cross Rhythms gave it a perfect ten writing that it is "a finely crafted album that builds on the band's previous self-titled album."
"Refugees" is the debut single by The Tears, released on 25 April 2005 on Independiente Records. It charted at number 9 on the UK singles chart. This was relatively good considering the lack of success achieved by the previous Suede album. The title track's lyrical content is said by Brett Anderson to have political meaning, regarding his disgust towards the treatment of refugees.
The second single from the debut album, "Lovers," was originally slated to be a b-side to the Refugees single. This was changed after the record label decided it was worthy of being on the album. Anderson claimed that b-side "Southern Rain" deserved to be on the album. The song was well received by critics. Nick Cowen of Drowned in Sound rated it 8 out of 10, saying: "'Refugees' showcases all the dilettante-like swagger the pair's former band exhibited on its more upbeat numbers." John Murphy of musicOMH wrote that, "Anderson sounds more inspired than he has done in years and the song itself boasts a gloriously epic feel, worthy of the first Suede album."
"Refugees" is a song written by Danny McNamara and Richard McNamara of the English alternative rock band Embrace. The song was originally recorded by the band as a track for their eponymous sixth studio album, Embrace, where it appears as the third track on the album. "Refugees" was first released as the Embrace track, but debuting on the namesake seventh extended play, Refugees, which was released in promotion of Embrace two months prior. It appears as the opening track on the EP. A "Refugees" promotional single, boasting a radio edit of the song, was sent to UK Modern rock radio in January 2014, in promotion of both Refugees and Embrace.
