  1. 8.0 |   BBC

    A supremely accomplished sophomore album. Fall to Grace is proof that pop doesn't need to be grey and restrained to feel grown-up

  2. 6.0 |   Mojo

    Nellee Hooper's production, taking an odd Europop flourish as well as classic soul flavours, serves the zesty material well. Print edition only

  3. 6.0 |   The Arts Desk

    Worth visiting on a download mission rather than going the whole hog

  4. 6.0 |   Evening Standard

    Paloma Faith remains a star, but her music isn’t quite so stellar

  5. 6.0 |   The Independent

    Paloma Faith has hooked up with producer Nellee Hooper to develop her undeniable talents in more modern directions

  6. 6.0 |   Independent on Sunday

    A big pop album full of big poppy hooks

  7. 6.0 |   The Digital Fix

    Fall To Grace has a constant, steady pulse throughout and really needs several listens to grasp and appreciate the moments where it excels above the multitude of popular female vocalists

  8. 6.0 |   Tone Deaf

    A well-rounded, girly pop album
    Read Review

  9. 6.0 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    It is undeniably a step down from her excellent 2009 release, with too little suiting such a distinctive artist

  10. 6.0 |   All Music

    Commercially, she's faring well. Artistically, she's still coming into her own

  11. 6.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Faith blends a fierce old-school vocal attack (the Dusty in Memphis drama on “Beauty of the End”) with new-school flexibility (the disco-diva turn on “Blood, Sweat & Tears”)

  12. 4.0 |   music OMH

    Few could deny her vocal talents but you can't help but feel the character that made her stand out in a crowded pop room has been diluted somewhere along the line

  13. 4.0 |   The Observer

    Lots of nondescript ballads, a splash of contemporary disco
    Read Review

  14. 4.0 |   Q

    Resolutely middle-of-the-road box-ticker that fails to engage. Print edition only

  15. 4.0 |   The Irish Times

    The album’s saving grace is Just Be, a simple, bluesy piano tune that allows Faith’s personality to break through the wall of glossy homogeny. It’s a shame we don’t see more of it
