  1. 9.0 |   music OMH

    The real mastery here is that it is impossible not to be plunged head first into Some Say I, and, just as with Ejimiwe’s live performances, become utterly rooted to the spot

  2. 8.0 |   DIY

    An intelligent and, most importantly, a cathartic album it allows Ghostpoet to shed his worries in the most eloquent and interesting ways

  3. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    Nearly every track is as strong as his debut's undoubted highlight, Cash and Carry Me Home

  4. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    A collection of songs that push boundaries and contend as great post-hip-hop

  5. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Sparse, simple songs of alienation, anxiety and relationship woes. Print edition only

  6. 8.0 |   Q

    Not since Massive Attack's Blue Lines have a heavy heart and urban dread been so absorbing. Print edition only

  7. 8.0 |   NME

    A triumph of agitated beats, jazzy keyboards and slurred rap

  8. 8.0 |   The 405

    There are a number of high-profile guests on the album, but it's definitely still his record, an album on which he's paradoxically more sure and more unsure of himself

  9. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    These tracks put a greater emphasis on their live components. The result, perhaps surprisingly, is that the sound actually becomes more haunting than that of the debut

  10. 8.0 |   The Quietus

    So Some Say I… skitters from rock pillar to dance post. It's as indie as it is hip-hop

  11. 8.0 |   All Music

    Ghostpoet remains the most aptly named rapper in the game with his excellent sophomore effort

  12. 8.0 |   Beats Per Minute

    The best art is the kind that makes you think and broadens your perspective, which this record does in spades

  13. 7.0 |   The Digital Fix

    More full bodied than the debut and creates a resonance which you would normally equate to decades of experience in the music industry
    Read Review

  14. 7.0 |   Clash

    In a way an ideal sequel, but it’s a missed opportunity
    Read Review

  15. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    It intrigues, if never quite soars, and reinforces the sense that there must be something going on here, even if you can't fathom quite what it is
    Read Review

  16. 6.0 |   State

    Some Say I So I Say Light is at its best when Ghostpoet ignores the need to chronicle everyday mundanity and focuses his talents on grander themes and richer musical textures
