CRITIC REVIEWS

Paste

It’s a deeper, more satisfying experience, with emotional substance that Lights so sorely lacked.

70
Consequence of Sound

In today’s era of pop, where computers find the soul for winning contestants, it’s hard to scoff at Goulding, whose sole problem on her record is being too emotionally redundant. 

70
PopMatters

On Halcyon Goulding amplifies her music genealogy, both who she is and who she’s been, in what is an often successful attempt to transition to iconic stardom. 

50
NME

‘Halcyon’ sees Goulding’s quirky-as-usual vocals lazily spliced into factory-standard chart dance.
