"John Hampson's latest offering maintains the pop sensibility we all remember from his time with Nine Days and the hit single, "Absolutely (Story of a Girl)." But "How Much" has a few new, and much welcomed, changes. While Hampson's ability for hit-writing remains strongly evident, this song has the tone and musicality of a much more diverse and interesting composer. He melds many instrument sounds and rhythms building the song from light verse to rich chorus soaked with smooth vocal harmony and warm timbres. The bridge is the real ear-catcher and with touching lyrics and driving rhythms it's the musical highlight of this tune. Hampson sews familiar emotions to strong melodies and warmth and makes this song worth listening to."
