CRITIC REVIEWS

91
A.V. Club

The musical spaciness only enhances his already-considerable dignity and the gravitas of his songwriting, making Mith a powerful, prophetic collection.

90
Loud and Quiet

A staggering work of unbridled ambition, intelligent improvisation and, above all, profound soul.

80
AllMusic

MITH is the most powerful album yet from a truly inspirational artist who deserves to be acknowledged as a national treasure.

79
Pitchfork

On MITH, Holley does with music what he’s done with visual art for decades: He collects our ugliest obscured objects and transforms them into singular reflections on our troubled world.

60
The Observer

Although neophytes might struggle with Holley’s shruggy attitude to tunefulness ... a coterie of associates help to flesh out Holley’s non-linear storytelling into something more conventionally accomplished.
