  1. A record, then, that says nothing, beautifully. When Burrows develops a lyrical accuracy as keen as his musical one, these Arrows will truly burst hearts.
  2. Q Magazine
    I Am Arrows finds Burrows ploughing a fuzzy acoustic furrow to delight fans of summery '70s pop. [Aug 2010, p.120]
  3. If Burrows gifted Razorlight two of their biggest hits (in "America" and "Before I Fall To Pieces"), what his former band gave him in return was the platform to bring something far more interesting into the light of day. Welcome the new dawn.
  4. The multi-instrumentalist's work is deft and pleasing, despite its spoonfuls of utilitarian soft rock.
  5. It's not a perfect album by any means; some of the more cutesy numbers can border on the twee, and at 44 minutes it's far too long for a collection of songs that essentially sound very similar. But it is an extremely promising debut, and a warm, breezy and openly-referential antidote to the hordes of cacophonic pretenders taking themselves far too seriously.
  6. Sharing the pop soul sensibilities of Squeeze with just a dash of Brendan Benson, there's even a soup├žon of harpsichord in there. What's not to like about these small songs with a big heart?
  7. The I Am Arrows project clearly has potential, but at 14 tracks, Sun Comes Up Again can feel like a trudge through the outback of mediocrity rather than an exciting exploration into new territory.
