    That Seven Dials is always on the move, though, doesn’t hint at finality, more at the further possibility of great things to come. This, for any lover of the cracked ballad, the pop hit, the smart word or the perfectly chosen chord, is essential.

    Seven Dials reminds us of the joy Frame finds in craft, its grateful rallentando endings, plum chord-voicing and exquisitely sung choruses elevating a work that seems part break-up album, part understated redemption story. [Jun 2014, p.94]

    A long overdue return, and well worth the wait.

    Melodies unfold, lyrics reveal their meaning and the wait is revealed as having been worth it. [Jun 2014, p.116]

    Frame's always been an old soul, and the heartfelt Seven Dials is a welcoming return. [No. 113, p.55]

    Overall, time has not diminished Frame's evergreen gift for bittersweet, heart-twanging introspection. [Jul 2014, p.95]

    Things are less compelling when the tempo drops, as on the undistinguished Rear View Mirror, but this is a welcome return nonetheless.
