    Kind Heaven is a beautifully conceived, exquisitely constructed and fully realised work of towering ambition. ... The perfect album to soundtrack the summer. [15 Jun 2019, p.54]

    The results range from extraordinary to bemused but they are never dull. [Summer 2019, p.111]

    Kind Heaven is an ambitious, engaging record by an artist who clearly still has plenty of fire in his belly.

    As ever, and in the best sense, Farrell aims high and wide. [Jul 2019, p.80]

    Regardless of how you view the album Kind Heaven, it’s best digested in microdoses.

    An exotic and exuberant affair with hard-rock, electronica and symphonic elements. ... Some might find the afterlife that Farrell's Kind Heaven promises a little daunting, ultimately. There's a helluva lot going on all the time. [Jul 2019, p.89]

    Farrell’s ambition is an admirable quality he wears on his sleeve, and at times, he showcases an impressive stylistic versatility. However, throughout this album, he takes indiscriminate left turns, and it ultimately makes Kind Heaven a needlessly gratuitous and pretentious mess.

    I challenge you to listen to this garbage more than once. It’s simply an stain on his music legacy.
