5.8.19 | Pop, Rinse, Repeat review 

The recently announced Skynem GT Remix of "Real Good Fight" has received its first review from music blog Pop, Rinse, Repeat, and it couldn't be better! 

"It takes skill and a mastery of your instrument to not overshadow the original work and Skynem GT has done just that. It's a much easier interpretation to the track all the while building and swelling into a hopeful anthem that just makes you feel good. Music has a way of reaching those parts of you that you didn't know you needed to be touched until it happens and Robert is doing a damn good job at that".

2.7.19 | Essentially Pop review 

UK music blog Essentially Pop has written a glowing review of "Real Good Fight".

"The song hits hard for those who see themselves stuck in a rut and not feeling truly happy with where they are in life. With its highly relatable yet inspirational lyrics, O’Connor describes perfectly what it feels like to not feel satisfied with the path that you’re on and changing direction to something that makes you happy.".

31.5.19 | Pop, Rinse, Repeat review 

"Real Good Fight" has received a glowing review from music blog Pop, Rinse, Repeat.

"You can hear that he does this because there's no where else he'd want to be and nothing better that he'd rather be doing. He's not doing it because it's going to bring him fame and fortune, he does it because it's part of who he is. I wasn't familiar with Robert before this video but I've stepped back through his other works and it's just honest songwriting and the world needs a whole lot more of that".

"His voice is pure and soft, and moving – if this song doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, especially at this time of year when we’re all thinking of what we’ve achieved and what lays ahead, then I’m not sure what will!"

18.11.18 | Caesar Live'n'Loud article 

Caesar Live 'N' Loud continues to support Robert's work this year with an article about his new single "River".

Speaking to the music site, Robert said: For many years I’ve thought about recording this song - and last Christmas when I was planning my comeback I decided, if the first two singles were well-received, I’d finally do it".

He added: "When I went into the studio to record it, the most important thing was that it wasn’t going to sound like a karaoke cover where I copied every element of the original. There’s enough versions out there with acrobatic vocals and piano, it was time for an alternative approach!"

18.11.18 | MyFizzyPop review 

Music critic Paul Reynolds has given "River" a positive review on his iconic blog MyFizzyPop. 

"He's taken the song back to its architectural blueprints and re-built it in a bold, evocative new way. It is a daring take on the classic song and one that pays off, leaving you with your own thoughts and reminiscing as the music fades away".
