    A. A. Williams has allowed her listeners to exorcise difficult emotions on this record. She provides an aural tonic through her idiosyncratic, beautifully executed sounds.

    With Forever Blue, she has created an album for those who like to close their curtains when the sun is out; it’s a debut of richness, depth and genuinely shattering emotional engagement – pure melancholic majesty to lose yourself in.

    The confidence and direction A.A. Williams projects makes it feel more like her fifth album rather than her first. It’s a stunning, haunting work that sets the stage for what should be an enthralling and even more provocative career.

    ‘Forever Blue’ is a confident debut, one that carries the weight of experience beyond her years.

    A remarkable accomplishment, confirming that Williams has already built a world all of her own. [Aug 2020, p.84]

    While Williams can operate at either extreme of the spectrum, the softer likes of "Dirt" - a haunting duet with Tom Fleming of Wild Beasts and One True Pairing - suggest where her true forte lies. [Aug 2020, p.39]
