" ... On 'Soothing Sounds' and the title track, Coyne's guitar-picking and Aglaja Camphausen's cello wind deliciously around Liebezeit's simple syncopations, while the 11-minute plus 'Thank You (I've Got The Idea)' is a brilliantly arranged manipulation of space and sound." 4/5 stars
(Mike Barnes, Mojo magazine)
"Simple lyrics, almost Zen like in their sparseness, backed by wonderful instrumentation... Coyne and Liebezeit manage to weave layers within the songs, the guitar mesmerising at times as on 'In The Rehearsal Room' where Coyne's nimble picking throws flurries of notes in the listener's direction... The album is a fine late night listen, the spare rhythms something of a balm."
(Paul Kerr, Blabber 'n' Smoke)
"This is the third disc of this alliance and it's surprising that it continues to work, especially given such a minimalistic approach - Jaki colouring with percussion, Robert whispering and caressing nuances with acoustic guitar. Above all it works because the songs are beautiful."
(Sergio Martos, Ruta 66 Magazine)
"Awash in subtle, deft changes in mood and style... sophisticated and artful. Interesting, and most certainly a creative pairing who know each other as well as they know themselves."
(Maurice Hope, Flyinshoes Review)
"The third of a series of increasingly amazing albums, I Still Have This Dream is a stunning composition of songs with a gentle, relaxing and tender tone... Coyne and Liebezeit are a masterful pair of musicians, each with their own specialist areas; when combined they have the power to make their music feel minimalistic and grandiose at the same time."
(Joe Knipe, Artree)
"A well-crafted, fully realised body of work." 7.8/10
(Steve Janes, Withguitars.com)
" Incisively compelling songs... Jaki Liebezeit has the less-is-more approach down to a featherlight but funky art. 'I Still Have This Dream' unfurls like a pastoral, psychedelic whisper as Liebezeit's skeletal pulses underpin Coyne's understated vocals and guitars." 4/5 stars (Kris Needs, Record Collector magazine)
