  1. 10.0 |   Independent on Sunday

    The voice is a gift from the gods; the level of songwriting equally unnatural in one so young... The new Dolly? The new Loretta? Hell no. She's Caitlin Rose. And she's all the better for that

  2. 9.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Caitlin’s peers will be hard pushed to find a more worthy competitor; brimming with the passion, dexterity and drive it’s necessary to have to rule the roost for years, nay decades

  3. 8.5 |   BBC

    Rose’s debut long-player actually reins in her EP’s feistier extremes somewhat to deliver 10 tracks of timeless, simply adorned song-craft

  4. 8.0 |   The Independent

    Rose is blessed with a voice as sweet as Patti Page's or Patsy Cline's, and a songwriting talent that brings a flinty frankness to country's standard romantic fare

  5. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    Caitlin Rose is the best thing to come out of Nashville in a long damn time

  10. 8.0 |   The Skinny

  12. 8.0 |   The Digital Fix

    The first thing you’re likely to notice is the power of her soulful, languorous voice, but that would be nothing without tunes to back it up, and there’s tunes aplenty

  13. 8.0 |   NME

    The vulnerability in Caitlin’s voice chimes as true as the clink of a quarter in an old jukebox
    Read Review

  14. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Rose exceeded the expectations that her EP drummed up and delivered a beautiful and tender, youthfully energetic album that crosses the line Rose herself has been toeing so carefully between indie and country

  15. 8.0 |   Blurt

    An album that demands repeated listens - if only to soak up the full breadth of the talent invested
    Read Review

  16. 6.0 |   Slant Magazine

    A likable record that splits the difference between indie rock and Americana

  17. 4.0 |   Mojo

    A missed opportunity but there's still plenty of time to get back on track. Print edition only
