The Gizzle Review3/5 stars[2]

Songs from Another Love was met with generally favourable reviews from critics, with The Gizzle Review awarding the extended play three out of five stars; reviewing: "The comparison to Jeff Buckley's evocative troubadour songs is just, every crack in Odell's vocal imbued with heart-breaking darkness. There's a great influence of Chris Martin too, particularly the sliding vocal melodies of "Sense" accompanied solely by piano. "Can't Pretend" continues the Coldplay vibe, whilst the thrumming guitar of demo track "Stay Tonight" is similar to Ben Howard (the current top dog of the troubadour world). It's the polished title track "Another Love" that stands out most though. Odell's voice whispers and breaks with alluring fragility, before powerfully soaring above the crescendo of piano and drums. It's a sound indebted to the past rather than heralding an exciting new fusion of styles, but Odell is certainly an accomplished talent."
