Drowned in Sound

Tooth & Nail is a largely warm and comfortable record that sees Bragg often playing the musician as opposed to the activist; reminding the listener how competent he is in the role of the former.


The tone of Tooth and Nail, lyrically and musically, is “mature” and “sophisticated” in a way that stops short of dull and ends up feeling pleasantly familiar, like reuniting with an old friend.

Consequence of Sound

The singer proves he can be every bit as raw and unnerved when looking himself in the mirror as he is when attempting to tackle society’s bigger issues. 

A.V. Club

In spite of its title, Tooth & Nail sounds like a cozy old rocking chair of an album, full of session players, slide guitar, and a songwriter softened by age.
