The Telegraph music critic Neil McCormick awarded the album a 5 Star(!) review saying:


I hope it gets the traction it deserves as it’s a quietly stunning collection of perfectly constructed songs infused with delicate arrangements, unforgettable melodies and rousing gospel flourishes. The foreboding synth hook and skittery beat of opening song Just When I Thought and the brooding hip hop of Bang, featuring US rapper Tobe Nwigwe, are outliers here. The remaining eight tracks essentially make this an album of vintage slow-paced R&B and acoustic soul. Won’t Turn Back and By Design (Evel Knievel) feature muted drums and subtle harmonies and could have come straight from the golden era of Motown or Chess Records. There are touches of Mercury-winner Sampha in his delivery as well as, at times, the rumbling soul-growl of Rag ‘n’ Bone Man.
