Simon Price of The Independent gave the album a perfect score, calling it Xiu Xiu's finest album to date. Ed Comentale of Tiny Mix Tapes also praised the album, writing "Xiu Xiu has been around for a while, but it is less a band or a trend that can fade with time than a critical germ cultivated and fed from within.
The best songs on Always lean toward the poppier, breathier end of that range. It's not so jarring to hear Stewart sing about his brother's troubled domestic life, as he does on "Joey's Song", but it is jarring to hear him sing it over a lush, shoegaze-inspired synth-pop backing. The album is front-loaded with these inviting juxtapositions, where horrific lyrical imagery collides with rich instrumentation and melodies that scrape the underside of catchy.

Xiu Xiu: avant-garde provocateurs of the last ten years. Jamie Stewart?s brainchild. Eight studio albums, ?Always? being the eighth. Every release has been as diverse and as absorbing to the level that it?s now got to a point where you can?t possibly tell what the next Xiu Xiu album is going to sound like. Is this a good thing, you ask? Well, I?ll leave that for you to decide, but any band that can alter and shape their sound in a way that?s almost unrecognisable from their other material can only be seen as a good thing, in my eyes (mind). Always? is an album that may just give Xiu Xiu the attention the band deserves. It?s an intriguing, varied, gritty album that snares your attention and twists until you have to peel the strangehold away. You should listen to this at least once.
