Entertainment Weekly
Nightfall finds Little Big Town in prime form, using harmonizing and honesty to get themselves through the high times and the low moments.

Perhaps these distinctions are understated but they're nevertheless felt and help give Nightfall a delicate richness; it's music for meditative mornings or for afternoons in need of a dose of consolation and comfort.

No Ripcord

Nightfall has its moments—from the disco-flavored title track to the tense River of Stars—but the most consistent issue is how the entire project lacks some grit.

Lyrically pretty shallow and musically pretty bland, but overall pleasant-sounding, I guess. I won't remember any of these tracks in five minutes. I really wanted to like it, but I'm not feeling it.

Best track: Sugar Coat
Worst track: Problem Child

Rating: MEH
Next to You is the only track which I might return to, the rest is generic and boring country pop.

As always they shine with their instrumentals and vocals. I think their sound has always been pretty solid. About halfway through I’m ready for the album to wrap up. I did find Questions, Nightfall and Next to You enjoyable.
