  1. 9.0 |   music OMH

    It’s a remarkably assured album that shines light on Hayes as an artist of note while further enhancing Brewis’ reputation as an irrepressible source of creativity. It might only be January but this is an album that will bring joy right up to the end of the year and beyond

    A masterfully pulled together collection, as you would expect from artists each with their own lengthy playbook. It will be interesting to see if it draws enough attention to warrant a follow up

  10. 6.0 |   The Arts Desk

    Although the songs are all co-written, the stylistic upper hand on You Tell Me is that of Field Music

  11. 5.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Collaborative successes do appear here – most notably on the Simon and Garfunkel-facing baroque pop of ‘Invisible Ink’ – however too frequently this album is a little less than the sum of its parts. Uneven, but occasionally charming

  13. 4.0 |   The Irish Times

    While You Tell Me may not be the most memorable release of the year, it does have moments such as the earnest No Hurry and the lilting presence of pedal steel on Clarion Call to make up for its shortcomings
