"A beautiful album with echoes of Nick Drake" -- The Sunday Times
"A compelling debut record" -- **** Q magazine
"Alexander's debut album 'Morning Brings a Flood' is the most beautiful album I have heard in years. Period" -- New York Post
"An object lesson in how to wring out every last drop of emotion" -- *** UNCUT
"Songwriting of a rare quality"
`Alexander Wolfe is a singer-songwriter from South London armed with an awesome voice and an artillery of engaging songs bound to win more than a few fans. His album, 'Morning Brings A Flood... is testament to his talent and determination [...] The refreshing result is frankly, superb - the audio equivalent of a one-fingered salute to the generic indie music that's currently insulting the airwaves. Prepare to be wooed by a multi-tasking powerhouse of a man.' -- The Playground - 5 Star feature on `Morning Brings A Flood'
`Rather beau strummy sad pop what pongs of Nick Drake, `Till Your Ship Comes In' in particular is marked out by some accomplished, sweeping orchestrational prettiness. And though young Alexander could never be accused of taking a neon chainsaw to those pesky genre barricades, it is worth remembering that not everything in music has to. Keep going readers, the bit about spanking is not far off, now.' -- Drowned In Sound - Singles Of The Week
`There's something reaffirming about hearing a real, true DIY record, conceived in lofts and bedrooms, which reminds you that there is some hope for the music business after all. If Wolfe can continue to develop and realise the immense amount of potential here, he could well become a very successful artist. Let's hope so.'

`With songs full of sadness, regret and longing, this newbie sounds like a husky, bluesy Chris Martin.' -- The Guardian - New Band Of The Day
