At Metacritic, they assign a "weighted average" score to selected independent ratings and reviews, and based upon twelve reviews, the album has a Metascore of 73 meaning that it received "generally favorable" reviews.[1] At Rolling Stone, Chuck Arnold rated the album three stars out of five, stating that "Rateliff hasn't completely forgotten his folkie past: The wistful "Wasting Time" shows that he can still kill you softly."[5] Thom Jurek of AllMusic rated the album three-and-a-half stars out of five, writing that "Rateliff's world-weary, deeply expressive tenor and lyrics place him on a different level than any of the current crew of revivalists."[2] At The Guardian, Harriet Gibsone rated the album three stars out of five, stating that "Aside from Snake [sic], which brings to mind Paolo Nutini slumped at the back of a strip club, the album is full of the ghosts of songwriting greats like Otis Redding, Chuck Berry and Van Morrison, and sounds like it should establish Rateliff as the breakneck bar brawler of the new soul movement."[3]
