CRITIC REVIEWS

American Songwriter

This flawlessly conceived follow-up draws from many of the same influences yet broadens her boundaries. It’s every bit as potent and expertly arranged, putting it in play as an early contender for one of 2020’s finest albums.

The Line of Best Fit

As the next chapter in an unimpeachably reliable catalog, Nicole Atkins couldn’t ask for anything more from Italian Ice, preserving her artistic hallmarks, deepening her emotional lyrical depth, while broadening her stylistic palette.

AllMusic

It's an eclectic set, for sure, but loyal to a nostalgic musicality that doesn't take itself too seriously; there's a bit of a wink and smile to Italian Ice that adds an extra layer of charm.

Under The Radar
The whole album is stuffed with hooks and brilliant ideas. This is peak Nicole Atkins.

What we have is, essentially, a flawless yet anonymous pop-soul record that may as well not have had such an extensive guest list. Rather than all of these guest stars, it might have been prudent to get the best out of just one.

italian ice is a decent pop soul album that i'm more mixed about than anything. it constantly fluctuates between strong, innovative songs and ones that are a lot more bland in my opinion. "domino," "captain," and "these old roses" are highlights.
