    In somebody else's hands, the introspection of Lovesick Blues could turn solipsistic or sodden, but he strikes precisely the right notes, creating an album that serves as a suitable soundtrack for long, lonely nights.

    Lovesick Blues requires a fair amount of digging from the listener, but those who put in the time will find much to treasure.

    The songs, musically dazzling with strings and fetching arrangements, sometimes organise themselves into forceful hooks. [Mar 2013, p.77]

    Lovesick Blues is more a collection of great moments than great songs, although there are a few of those as well.

    With Big Star now put to rest following the passing of Alex Chilton, Stamey is the rightful person to fill his shoes. Lovesick Blues offers more than enough proof that he's fully prepared to do just that.

    This is a lovely, bittersweet and nuanced album. [No. 95, p.59]
