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

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.

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.

NME

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

Anything Could Happen is certainly the best music of Ellie, and Halcyon their best album.

I'd regret giving her anything less. I swear she has a gift at covering songs and making her own songs either emotional or just flat out cool. My Blood is by far the song that stood out the most in this album and deserved some award recognition.
