    Evokes Watt's early mentor Robert Wyatt at his most enthralling and adventurous. [Mar 2020, p.37]

    His versatility serves him incredibly well once again, and ultimately prevents the demons from bringing him down. By laying bare his troubles, Ben Watt has made his finest album yet.
  3. Jan 30, 2020
    The soft, subtle tension between the deeply felt songs and the smooth, sophistication of the execution is quite rewarding, since the album can alternately play like a plea or a balm, depending on mood or timing.

  7. Q Magazine
    Feb 11, 2020
    As an act of Catharsis, Storm Damage was clearly an important one for the singer, even if ultimately it yields mixed results. [Apr 2020, p.114]

Mas ainda falta muito pra queClaramente um bom álbum, mas ainda falta uma identidade musical, Tomlinson tem referências musicais ótimas. Mas ainda falta muito pra que alcance seu espaço no meio da música. Ele conseguirá já que tem um ótimo histórico como compositor da One Direction, porém Walls é apenas uma tentativa Expand
