“Look Around” bears a visceral sentimentality and a depth of emotional expression delivered through poignant orchestration, heartbreaking lyrical content, and outstanding vocal performance. It is a lovely ballad. The orchestration is perfect – organic and balanced while lending a very grand sort of gravity to the song. The cascading piano part that begins at 2:21 is sublime beneath Ms. Joy’s strong vocals. The use of the song’s melody in the instrumentation both at the beginning and during the interludes gives a strong sense of classical drama and narrative cohesion to the sound – really well done. Melodically, “Look Around” is highly memorable and emotionally evocative – which is exactly what a composition of this nature needs. –( Jon Wright, Radio Airplay)
