    Toujours is an album of true originality, executed with humor, warmth, and spark, and captivating from beginning to end.

    Sciubba turns in surreal, lo-fi rock, delivered with the drop-dead charisma of Patti Smith and in the dark-brown tenor of Nico. [Apr 2014, p.97]

    The tunes--from the devilishly catchy title track to the clattering, anthemic ‘Viva L’Amour’ and the swoonsome, panoramic ‘Tabarly’, complete with romantic mariachi trumpets--are superb.
  4. A delightful indie pop record that’s by turns intense, playful and touching.

    Toujours reminisces to an age of simple love songs, and Sabina encapsulates a more elegant, Breton-wearing, subtle popstar in the milieu of Serge Gainsbourg’s Paris.

    Some of Sabina’s songs have a more enigmatic side, an undercurrent of restlessness and displacement.

    The songs are sparer, she’s picked up a scratchy electric guitar, and there’s air around her low, enigmatic voice--like Nico, waking up on the right side of the bed.

    [A] thoughtful solo debut. [Apr 2014, p.118]
