    It doesn't really ever quite rise above excellently pleasant, yet it's remarkably consistent, musically varied and occasionally, endearingly specific. [Aug 2013, p.90]
  2. Kinsella has, yet again, created music as an art form and has provided us with a soundtrack to all of those moments between the events.

    A sense of excited satisfaction runs through L'Ami du Peuple, finding a still curious and motivated Kinsella a little bit older, but learning new things all the time and coming up with some of his best songs yet.

    As always, Kinsella comes across as well-read, thoughtful, and concerned, reflecting the veteran musician’s early Cap’n Jazz days as much as his new fatherhood.

    [The] sly, artful brilliance should come as no real surprise. [No. 100, p.57]

    While Ghost Town was more impactful for its consistency, L'Ami du Peuple allows Kinsella to spread out and open himself up to different styles. [Jun-Jul 2013, p.89]

    L’Ami du Peuple is a predominantly rewarding album, despite the occasional misstep and despite its unambitious stylistic orthodoxy.
