"I don’t often give albums the maximum rating, yet for this one, it sadly seems too little to describe all the magic and wonders you will encounter here. Most great records today have impeccable songwriting and the right attitude to touch your heart, but Songs About Humans has even more. Sam Gray Singing is not only an incredibly gifted musician, but he also realised the quasi impossible by creating something totally unique." - Disageement.net
"Samuel Gray a.k.a. Sam Gray Singing ... oscillates between calm and chaos just like it was second nature... Gray's vocal is another instrument in a gorgeous mix of styles... Gray displays his classical training to the fullest and his fellow musicians add their talents well." -lunakafe.com
"Broodingly delicate, this album will leave you feeling slightly misplaced and even a little shell-shocked. If Salvador Dali were a modern-day composer, he'd probably sound something like this. Sam Gray is a pianist and composer by trade, but he rightfully breaks the all the rules in this original and uncanny album." -grooveguide.co.nz
"unique music ... Far from being dated, the album is a prescient look into the future ..incorporating elements that range from Radiohead to Oscar Peterson, to Metalion. This is an album to appreciate artistically and that pushes the boundaries of musical thought." - floorshimezipperboots.com
"Sam Gray Singing ... is a classically trained pianist who here hauls in industrial rock guitars, strings, explosive drums and ambient sounds to create a multi-hyphenated genre of his own. When things are more constrained or at the sonic landslide end of the spectrum this seems the better for it: sort of Robert Wyatt at the quiet end ... and prog-metal at the other... you might openly speculate as to whether Sam Gray Singing is a genius..." -elsewhere.co.nz
