You can always count on your dad to have your back - and that is certainly true for Brit award-winning singer Tom Odell.

Despite winning the critics' choice award at this year's Brits, the NME magazine awarded his debut album 0/10 in its review.

Tom's father saw red - and called the magazine's office to complain, according to the magazine's deputy editor:

Such a low mark is apparently rare for the music magazine.

However quotes from the article by NME journalist Mark Beaumont, obtained by The Independent, reveal how scathing the review was:

The review, which appears in this week's magazine, will be available online from Monday.
