All Music Guide
Alone will stand as an idiosyncratic gem in his catalog, showcasing him at his eccentric best.

Pitchfork
If nothing else, Alone reminds us that a lot of those over-ambitious, silly-on-paper ideas often blossomed in Cuomo's hands, and there was more to Weezer in their early days than just crisp power-pop and cute videos.

PopMatters
It’s not perfect, but it never tries to be. It shows Rivers Cuomo disarmed and open, doing what he loves.

Rolling Stone
But interesting the material is not: The tunes feel same-y and undercooked, and without a band to push him along, Cuomo's sad-dude act gets old fast.

The sum of its charms--and there are a few--add up to something for only the most devoted in the Cuomo cult.
