“And It’s Still Alright is stop-what-you’re-doing beautiful.” — Evening Standard
“In the end, what could be an album of well-earned indulgence ends up being as much about reaching outward than burrowing inward, rendering deep personal suffering with a humane light touch. And It’s Still Alright the heartening sound of music pulling him through his pain, and, hopefully, past it into something like solace.” — Rolling Stone
