"There are sparks of good pop music there, but it just needs some more oomph."


"The infrequent flurries of sincerity provide the standout moments... 'A Million Lights' works well, and it works now – largely, it's a scrapbook of 2012 trends."


"Previous Cole efforts felt like a brace of singles bolstered up by an entourage of pretenders; here, there's a genuine six or so tracks that sound like potential radio smashes."
