“Nathaniel Rateliff returns, this time as a solo artist, with what may be his best batch of songs yet.” — NPR All Songs Considered
“And It’s Still Alright is stop-what-you’re-doing beautiful.” — Evening Standard
“In the end, what could be an album of well-earned indulgence ends up being as much about reaching outward than burrowing inward, rendering deep personal suffering with a humane light touch. And It’s Still Alright the heartening sound of music pulling him through his pain, and, hopefully, past it into something like solace.” — Rolling Stone
“The result is a set of compositions of intense power, and an album that reaches multiple emotional crescendos, from grown male grief rarely expressed in contemporary song to varying degrees of regained equilibrium.” — Wall Street Journal
“…his new solo work takes him in a gentler acoustic direction, which is echoed across his upcoming album. His baritone has a lovely ragged edge.” — Time
“A great excuse to shut out the world and have a good cry.” — Uncut
“…regardless of instrumentation and genre, Rateliff’s reflex to write through painful mysteries remains the same.” — Billboard
