AllMusic

One Directioners will no doubt relish every moment of Flicker, but for casual fans potentially wary of the boy band stigma, they can rest assured knowing that Horan has taken a big first step into musical maturity, with his own voice and deep well of emotion.

The Independent

Give the lad his due: it would have been easy for the One Direction heartthrob to trot out a collection of ersatz R&B crowd-pleasers, but on Flicker he keeps faith with the West Coast influences that first drew him into music.

The Telegraph
“Tasteful” is the watchword. Chord changes are sweetly satisfying, melodies spill gently forth with singing that is soft, tuneful and emotionally understated.

NME
This is a promising and well-pitched effort that suggests Horan knows exactly who he wants to be as an artist. ‘Flicker’ definitely gets his post-One Direction career off to a bright start.

The Guardian
None of it is terribly exciting, but in fairness, setting the listener’s pulse racing with the head-spinning shock of the new clearly wasn’t the intention here.

Nada impressionante, inspiração obvia no monótomo pop folk masculino. Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes e vários homens e seus violões já fizeram algo parecido ou melhor.

As the third fifth of One Direction to release his debut solo album, Niall Horan soars with the fully self-realized Flicker. On this album, Niall knows his strengths, strong instrumentation, nostalgic lyrics, and tender vocals, and plays them up. Like former bandmate Harry Styles, Flicker is almost completely solo, bar the exceptional Maren Morris collaboration, “Seeing Blind.” Read more at blackboybulletin.wordpress.com/2017/10/20/niall-horan-shines-with-flicker/

John Mayer's albums just seem to get tamer and tamer, don't they?
