NME Magazine: “‘These People’ is the solo record most aligned to Ashcroft’s Verve peak, right down to employing the same string arranger and bunging on one gigantic romance anthem, ‘This is How It Feels’. It’s both a grandmaster lesson and an antidote to the current crop of insipid singer-songwriter mulch, the sound of Ashcroft charging into the acoustic rock youth centre and showing them how it’s done.”

The Guardian: “Certainly, he returns explicitly to the sound of Urban Hymns on his fourth solo album: neat, sad strings, unhurried percussion and his mellifluous foghorn of a voice. Ashcroft manages to relive his heyday nicely.”

The Irish Times: “He returns with his fourth solo endeavour and seems to be very much back on track… he is at his best on the sleek, string-laden indie rock of the title track and the gentle stomp of This Is How it Feels… tracks such as Everybody Needs Somebody to Hurt show that Ashcroft still has plenty of solid ideas left in his songbook.”
