Pitchfork

The band's debut was kind of a crumpled, nicotine-smudged affair, but Atlanta feels brighter, less muddled, not polished but certainly tidier around the edges.

Beats Per Minute

Leaving Atlanta is far from a perfect record — there is not anything approaching ‘classic status’ on it – but it is a very fine one, and certainly one of the best we will see in its genre this year.

Consequence of Sound

Gentleman Jesse’s positive energy is as infectious as the hooks in his songs, but it’s the sonic uniformity of those songs that make Leaving Atlanta overbearing when consumed as a whole.
