US Release date
  1. 8.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    By a distance, Britain’s most underrated pop star
    Read Review

  2. 8.0 |   God Is In The TV

    A very rich and inviting record. It deserves to break through as much as her previous releases
    Read Review

  3. 8.0 |   Pitchfork

    Vividly captures a love both intimate and powerful
    Read Review

  4. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    Delicate, soul-baring songs of love
    Read Review

  5. 8.0 |   The 405

    Mature and classy
    Read Review

  6. 7.5 |   Under The Radar

    It's a blessing that such pure, no-frills, sentimental pop should come from someone with the indie clout Ware still carries around. We all need a little love, and Glasshouse offers it in spades
    Read Review

  7. 7.0 |   Slant Magazine

    Perhaps she'll be emboldened to take greater risks as an artist, marking the polished, pleasurable Glasshouse not as a culminating point, but the start of a bold, new direction
    Read Review

  8. 6.0 |   Clash

    Even at her most unchallenging Jessie Ware remains a stellar vocalist, but that’s precisely the problem; she rarely feels challenged
    Read Review

  9. 6.0 |   Evening Standard

    Sam, an acoustic duet with Ed Sheeran about motherhood and meeting Mr Right, is a little saccharine while Stay Awake is as beige as a pasta sandwich
    Read Review

  10. 6.0 |   The Observer

    It still feels a little too safe, with only the closing Sam – a disarmingly heartfelt ode to her husband – forging a true emotional connection
    Read Review

  11. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    Smooth soul, ramped up when the diva lets loose
    Read Review

  12. 5.8 |   Consequence Of Sound

    A mixed-bag reminder that Ware's best songs are the ones that only she can sing
    Read Review

  13. 4.0 |   The FT

    Suffers from too much filler
    Read Review

  14. 4.0 |   The Arts Desk

    A captivating voice struggles to overcome a surprisingly flat collection
    Read Review

  15. 4.0 |   DIY

    She knows her niche inside out
    Read Review

  16. 4.0 |   State

    Overall, this is a solid effort but Ware needs to take a few risks to lift her out of middle-of-the-road songwriting and further into the public consciousness
