The Guardian
With no one expecting it but themselves Starsailor have delivered.

Dot Music
As is so often the case though all it takes is a fall to flush away fanciful tendencies and with All The Plans they revisit wholesale what it was that made them a draw in the first place (other than sounding a bit like Coldplay).

Observer Music Monthly
It's anthemic ('Tell Me it's Not Over') and slushy ('Hurts Too Much'), but it might just work.

Uncut
Clanging rockers, elegant ballads, and yearning epics are testement to their diversity, while James Walsh has almost managed to lose the bleat in his voice that used to drive Starsailor's critics to distraction. [Apr 2009, p.99]

musicOMH.com
All The Plans is full of driving piano, anthemic guitar, and a bit of swagger. They owe a huge debt to Coldplay, Ocean Colour Scene, and Oasis which, in itself, must be quite galling.

Mojo
You try to remember a single melody or hook from the record and you're found wanting. [Apr 2009, p.99]
