CRITIC REVIEWS

86
Sputnikmusic
An old fashioned, free-ranging rock album with enough charm, melody, and emotion to become Cronin’s greatest offering.
85
The Line of Best Fit

Rather than go big, like he did on MCIII, Cronin’s reeled things in, and spent time crafting the songs. He’s peppered Seeker with charismatic flourishes.

83
Consequence of Sound
The LP reveals how wide-ranging and bravely impassioned Cronin remains, allowing him to still rank among the best singer-songwriters out there.
80
AllMusic

No matter the stylistic variation found on Seeker ... Cronin's songs are hard-hitting, sticky and emotionally wrenching.

80
No Ripcord
It might be time to shift the lens on Cronin and to place him in the discourse of notable singer-songwriters, as an artist maturing in his own singular and promising direction.
75
Paste

Seeker ... sounds like a breakthrough unfolding before your very ears.

70
Under The Radar

Desperate but adorable, Seeker's dark, powerful rock comes from a fateful backstory.

70
Uncut

Seeker is equal parts purge and redirection, so perhaps unsurprisingly lacks MCIII's ambitious composition.

60
PopMatters
Mikal Cronin finds the groundwork for a classic with 'Seeker'
56
Pitchfork
The sound itself is a shrug, a noncommittal exploration of big ideas that never quite reaches an exclamation point, let alone a big impact.
50
Spectrum Culture
The impression that the album can’t deliver on what it promises is inescapable.
