There’s No Leaving Now is a compelling listen from a songwriter whose default setting is extraordinary.

87
Beats Per Minute

While still rooted in Dylan’s folk aesthetic, the music Matsson writes now is uniquely his voice. 

80
PopMatters

There’s No Leaving Now makes use of much the same map work laid out by Matsson on 2010’s fantastic breakout The Wild Hunt.

A.V. Club

There’s No Leaving Now feels a bit like treading water.

Under The Radar

Overall, There's No Leaving Now is a cohesive, wonderful album.

Pitchfork

While its good to hear his sound evolving, the results are mixed.

There’s No Leaving Now settles too readily into a single slumberous mood.

The Tallest Man On Earth returns with another delightful folk record that echoes the splendor of Dylan's early years. Most of what this record gets right is just a continuation on what made "The Wild Hunt" although it does feel a slight bit more bland than that record but still a solid folk album.

There's no Leaving Now is like a leaf slowly falling on the ground: Beautiful and delicate.

Not a bad album, by any means, just fairly unremarkable. 'Shallow Grave' remains the benchmark.
