"A Legend Returns," proclaimed NME in a cover story on Ashcroft, which hailedThese People as "brilliant...a slice of classic Verve song craft with modernist electronic touches." Pitchfork noted, "Ashcroft still possesses one of rock's great voices, his singular balance of grit and gravitas undisturbed by the passage of time." In a review of an intimate show at The Roundhouse in London, The Telegraph observed, "[With] This Is How It Feels, you remembered what made The Verve and Ashcroft special...Their songs were like rubies in the rubble: at their best, they sparkled."
