    He demonstrates an effortless knack for crafting intricate and loveable pop gems, while shamelessly embracing heart-on-sleeve lyricism about love, dreams and shooting stars. ... He has managed to produce one of the year's most interesting indie records.

    Well-crafted and well-executed throughout, A Dream Is U should appeal to fans of any of the aforementioned styles as well as to lovelorn romantics.

    Combined with the rich warm production, this results in a debut of largely seamless retro classic pop-rock. [Sep 2019, p.29]

    Francis Lung’s debut is catchy as hell, the kind of sunny indie rock that could easily soundtrack a backyard BBQ or road trip. It doesn’t do much to distinguish itself from the bevy of other bands that will inevitably come up next on Spotify following the record’s final song, but it’s still a pretty collection, one that makes for a worthwhile listen.

    Out of the harsh glare of the hype machine, Lung has the potential and the melodies, but would do well to rediscover some of that youthful bluster.

    Each of the album's 10 songs is a downbeat, dreamy, ultra-melodic yet angular nugget. [Sep 2019, p.90]

    A pretty but very conventional collection of love song. [Sep 2019, p.112]
