A.V. Club

Never Hungover Again isn’t a complete overhaul of the band’s sound, but with all the gentle twists on those charms, it ends up serving as a re-introduction.

DIY

They sound cohesive and focused again - focused on churning out jam after jam.

Exclaim!

Never Hungover Again is fully-grown and moves at a steady pace, while remaining characteristic to Joyce Manor's roots.

AllMusic

Joyce Manor make 20 minutes feel way more epic than the running time might promise, and Never Hungover Again ends up as the kind of record that feels like an instant classic.

78
Pitchfork

Once you stop trying to label what should be a hook and focus on what is, the ingenuity of each song’s design and the ear-turning nature of every maneuver speaks to Never Hungover Again's inexhaustible quality, the kind of album you can play three times in a row without any part wearing out its welcome.

NME

It’s not much more than the sum of its influences, but when its influences are this strong, it really doesn’t matter.

58
Consequence of Sound

It wears so many well-trod markers of pop punk that it struggles to rise from the backwash of young bands blasting power chords from scuffed-up Strats in ongoing homage to Stiff Little Fingers and the Queers.

Short, snappy, and fun, Joyce Manor's Never Hungover Again is a testimony to how much energy can buoy a record like this to cathartic listening.

HIGHLIGHTS: CHRISTMAS CARD, FALLING IN LOVE AGAIN, VICTORIA, SCHLEY, HEART TATTOO, THE JERK

Joyce Manor's got hooks. The album itself has just 10 tracks, none of which cross the 2 and a half minute mark. They're short, catchy, bursts of energy and the album is over before you know it. Usually I like to let an album sit with me and return to it later, but with this I had to listen again after it was over because it didn't outstay it's welcome in the slightest.

Loving their sound, only gripe is that the album is too short and would have loved a few more tracks.
