CRITIC REVIEWS

These nine songs are among the most intimate he’s written, with lyrics by turns blunt and delicate, underpinned with the candor you’d expect from an old friend given to straight talk.

The Line of Best Fit
On his new self-titled solo album, Bachmann offers up his most heartfelt, genuine collection yet, as his penetrating, thoughtful lyrics take honest stock of what he’s learned from his circuitous musical journey and how he feels about his place in this fractious world.

A.V. Club
The lasting impression is a deeply personal one, like the reflective calm after a long conversation full of hard-won lessons.

AllMusic
It's a thoughtful and neatly crafted album whose detailed framework feels like the right fit for Bachmann's rugged, world-weary meditations.

American Songwriter
Whether established Bachmann followers will follow him on this smoother musical road is hard to say. But these are some of the most musical and enjoyable tunes of his more than 20-year career.

I was pretty blown away by the first couple of listens, although this proved something of a shrinker for me. The song "Mercy" is still one of the stronger singles of the year, especially from a lyrical standpoint. "Mercy" is easily the highlight, but lyrically, most of the album is praiseworthy. If Bachmann had chosen stronger melodies and more interesting production to suit his voice, this could have been an AOTY contender for me.
