There’s No Leaving Now is a compelling listen from a songwriter whose default setting is extraordinary.

87
Beats Per Minute

While still rooted in Dylan’s folk aesthetic, the music Matsson writes now is uniquely his voice. 

80
PopMatters

There’s No Leaving Now makes use of much the same map work laid out by Matsson on 2010’s fantastic breakout The Wild Hunt.

A.V. Club

There’s No Leaving Now feels a bit like treading water.

Under The Radar

Overall, There's No Leaving Now is a cohesive, wonderful album.

71
Pitchfork

While its good to hear his sound evolving, the results are mixed.

64
Paste

There’s No Leaving Now settles too readily into a single slumberous mood.

60
Drowned in Sound

This is an agreeable record, but it comes from a man who we know is capable of something sublime.

This album shows his sound is evolving from just a guy on guitar/piano to something a bit more cohesive. While I do prefer his more raw side, this album greatly succeeds for its maturity and incredible songwriting.

Favourite tracks: 1904, Little Brother, On Every Page

Not a bad album, by any means, just fairly unremarkable. 'Shallow Grave' remains the benchmark.
