Put simply, Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon is Murder by Death’s most beautiful album to date.

The 405

Such is the creative breadth on Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon that it's a piece of work that can transition seamlessly between anthem & intrigue

PopMatters

The songs here take repeated listens to reveal themselves, the listener forced to peel slowly and listen in onion-like fashion, but once they’ve truly soaked in, they’re likely to have a longer lasting impression.

A.V. Club

On Murder By Death’s sixth full-length, Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon, that homage to Cash both heightens and hinders a disjointed, uneven procession of songs.
