Consequence of Sound

Electric rhythms intertwine with warm vocals and glowing melodies throughout Feral Roots, making for an experience where listeners will find something different to enjoy in each track.

AllMusic

Whether it's the Stones-ian swagger of "Stood by Me" or the galvanizing gospel choir-backed closer "Shooting Stars," Rival Sons may have complete control of the ship, but they intend to leave a huge wake.

Exclaim!

Feral Roots, just like their previous five albums, is a very good, well crafted album — it just doesn't offer any new surprises or diversity from past projects.

Brilliant album of the Sons doing what they do best, but with new twists here and there. ‘Too Bad’ is possibly their best song yet.
