Entertainment Weekly continues, "Joy focused on crafting piercing vignettes of young love and emotional restlessness --- and the results absolutely thrill." "It all adds up to an appealing album from an artist with a promising future," wrote Associated Press. "This is (Vance Joy's) time to really shine - and he seizes it."
