  1. Clash Music
    Jan 26, 2023
    The long-time drummer may be walking hesitantly into the spotlight, but the record carries a softly-spoken sense of confidence. An enriching song cycle, we sincerely hope this is only the start.

    The likes of "Downtown" and "1000 Miles" are modest but sumptuous ballads which suggest something of lo-fi Blue Nile, while "London Bridge," from the title downwards, is basically a Blur song, to which he is surely entitled. [Feb 2023, p.35]
  3. The Line of Best Fit
    Jan 19, 2023
    Whether he is the influencer or the influenced, there’s such a clear creativity and worldliness in his music, that Radio Songs should be listened to multiple times to really get the depth of where he’s taking his sound.
    Jan 20, 2023
    Having done so with great assurance, he has made an album of lasting appeal which responds well to repeated listening.
  5. AllMusic
    Jan 20, 2023
    This carefully constructed introspection does fulfill Rowntree's intention of Radio Songs mimicking the shape-shifting nature of late-night listening, acting as an aural journey to an astral plane.
  6. PopMatters
    Jan 19, 2023
    While the record isn’t quite as varied as switching from country to rock to classical to jazz, enough traits are buried in each song to make it interesting.
  7. Mojo
    Jan 19, 2023
    Not the pinnacle of his varied career, maybe, but not a low, either [Feb 2023, p.82]
