CRITIC REVIEWS

Clash

Ronson’s ability to tap into each artist’s strengths and dig out their particular prowess allows each voice to shine through and own each individual track.

Exclaim!

In the solid Late Night Feelings, sadness is more than an abstraction here: it's multifaceted, multilayered and mellifluous melancholy.

90
Loud and Quiet

It’s brilliant: unsettlingly off-balance with singles that shouldn’t be singles; production that crackles through ebullient torch songs with familiar crests and high ecstasies.

81
Paste

Night Feelings is his sharpest, sturdiest effort yet, made so by its cohesive, downer-dance sound and its hip slate of all-female featured vocalists.

80
The Independent

The emotional cohesion the record loses in its shifting cast of singers/songwriters/genres it makes up in DJ-savvy textural variety.

The Telegraph

'Sad bangers' served with a dollop of sauce.

DIY

‘Late Night Feelings’ is the last dance at the disco, as romances are made and dreams are broken; at least with Mark at the helm, you know the playlist’s in good hands.

80
AllMusic

Overall, this is one of Ronson's best works -- a complete pop album.

80
NME

Ronson's fifth album of "sad bangers" is a mixed bag of brilliant pop songs and sleepy filler tracks.

80
God Is in the TV

These carefully structured moments make Late Night Feelings Ronson’s most cohesive and strongest album. These feelings sound perfect late at night and they will last way beyond.

Entertainment Weekly

Feelings all goes down easily, but Ronson’s own creative DNA remains a mystery. This isn’t his manifesto; it’s a mixtape.

72
Pitchfork

It is ... a worthy entry in this still-developing pop pantheon, authentic and honest in its rendering of many shades of feminine sorrow.

70
Rolling Stone

Rangy, sexy and fairly seamless, an LP to play all the way through after a night of clubbing if you happen get lucky, or if you don’t.

70
Spectrum Culture

It innovates a little here and there, but the strength of Late Night Feelings comes largely from the relief it provides.

60
The Guardian

Ronson’s Achilles heel is, as ever, making everything feel as if it’s been endlessly worked on: his obsessional qualities can cloud the magic of the best pop. But equally, that craft is what songs blaring from iPhones sometimes lack.

musicOMH

Late Night Feelings finds him abandoning the retro fetishism that has dominated his career to date, completely immersed in late-2010s pop trends, with mixed results.

I admit, I've never been a fan or an avid listener of this guy's produced work but this one caught me by surprise. Working with other artists could be a tricky affair but he treads it with ease as these tracks glides in color, buoyed with emotions. You won me with this one, Mark.

Mark Ronson isn't someone who totally Uptown fucked me with his musical genius, but I did like "Uptown Funk". I was expecting this to be another safe producer's record, which it kinda is. What I wasn't expecting, however, was me liking this record as much as I did. This production on here is sleek and manages to avoid the trendy trap influences that seep into other mainstream producers' works. The all-female cast is also spot-on, with Angel Olsen, Lykke Li and Miley Cyrus (of all ... read more

Ronson has crafted, a series of vignettes I certainty didn't know he could still weave, laced with "late night feelings "of summer love coming to different ends, different moments its a great collective piece of music that is tinged with universal feelings and pop constructs you can see every track here sound-tracked by lonely and quiet summer places filled with night and a syncopation that makes you want to move with heartbreak, it isn't anything new and it's appeal will wash away ... read more

Glad the singles weren't the only good tracks on this. Collection on heartbreak tunes. Love the variety of the production and every guest gets to shine on their tracks.

Didn't really think I would like this as much as I did but there you go.
Basically an extension of what he embraced in his last album, but more consistent, more fun, and less reliant on the hit singles. Pretty great to see Ronson getting a good ear for catchy songs and doing what he likes doing best.
