Entertainment Weekly[4]C+

The album received mixed-to-positive reviews upon its release. In a review for Allmusic, John Bush praised the album's programming and overall sound, concluding that "'Since Then' is a breath of fresh air on a stifling summer day."[1] A similarly-positive review for, written by Fred Cisterna, called the album "pleasingly varied," also praising the album's cohesion.[3]

Entertainment Weekly's review was far less positive. Reviewer Tony Scherman concluded that "when Pooley aspires to songcraft, he falls short," giving the album a "C+"[4]

The album was also included on a number of critics' year-end lists. The album was number 12 on Pitchfork reviewer Paul Cooper's year-end albums list, and number 14 on fellow Pitchfork critic Richard Juzwiak's list.[5]


"Since Then" spawned four singles, two of which charted. Though the first two singles, "Coracao Tambor" and the album version of "Balmes," failed to chart, the next two singles performed better. "The third, a remix of "Balmes (A Better Life)," featured Canadian singer/songwriter Esthero and reached number 65 in the UK,[6] also peaking at number 34 on the Dance Club Songs chart in the US.[7] The fourth and final single, "900 Degrees," peaked at number 57 on the Official UK Singles Chart.[8]
