    A delightful surprise. [#75, p.99]
  2. An intimate, frequently beautiful and consistently surprising record that gets better with every listen.
  3. Even when he's sticking closest to the sound that made him famous, it's a kinder, gentler variation. [May 2007, p.150]
  4. [Yours to Keep] doesn't have the stylish and sexy six-string swagger one would expect from the 'froed Strokes guitarist, but it does yield enough Top 40 radio gems to spark a small feud with Liam Gallagher.
  5. There are some decent tunes. [Nov 2006, p.142]
  6. The musicianship on this album retains a professional, waxed sheen, and that’s part of the problem: Hammond sticks to the basics, employing pedestrian rock setups whether he’s punking along with gusto or putzing around on the beach.

    Reminds me of the days when the strokes were still relevant and it might just be nostalgia but I really like this album a lot. It's a nice surprise to see Albert is a good singer/songwriter and made a great solo album with this. Expand
