Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  1. There’s an obvious self-assurance on AWOBMOLG that’s been increasingly evident on his recent EP releases; a sense of things coming together and evolving into a sound that seems unhurried, unprompted and, best of all, natural.
  2. Were he only able to drop the naff drum machines, this would be a classier piece of classicism all round. [Sep 2004, p.117]
  3. Carr has always wanted to create his very own sound, and for the first time we are starting to hear it here.
  4. It's certainly a fact that he currently errs on the side of tweeness.
  5. 40
    Carr's ambitions outrun his abilities. [Sep 2004, p.98]
  6. 40
    The results are strangely disorientating and at times Carr's brittle, acoustic sketches are smothered by skull-jarring percussion. [Sep 2004, p.92]
  7. With only three 'songs' to speak of here, 'All Watched Over...' smacks of another great British songwriter having their melodic nous chewed away by electro-moths. [7 Aug 2004, p.49]
