CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Drowned in Sound

His organic modus operandi is as purely authentic as one can reach in his profession, but on Hundred Acres he displays a sort of cocksure elegance over his artistry.

78
Paste

This is his third solo album, and it’s well-written, breathtakingly pretty and as edgy as a cue ball.

70
The Line of Best Fit

Hundred Acres’ environment can occasionally border on the too-cozy and tender, and, as has been the case on previous records, certain songs simply wind down more than they come to any conclusion. Still, Carey ably shepherds the whole sentimental journey.

70
AllMusic

As a whole, Hundred Acres is a pleasing listen with a warm-hearted, pastoral feel, even if its nuances sometimes get lost in the cracks.

Exclaim!
With this album, S. Carey has proven that he isn't just Bon Iver's drummer — he can deliver a powerful album on his own.
65
Spectrum Culture

Hundred Acres is right on target for its polished, neatly trimmed sonic surroundings. Well, it would be if you hadn’t heard Carey’s first album.

64
Pitchfork

The tunes are full of big-hearted open chords, sweetly bowed strings, restorative synths, and stories about perseverance, love, and hiding in coves with lovers. The music heaves like foam on lake shores.

60
Dork

'Hundred Acres' is a joyous, delicate album that cements S. Carey’s consistent strength in songwriting.

40
PopMatters

This time out, Carey sheds the vital to prioritize the simple, and simple melodies aren't substantial enough to fill A Hundred Acres.

It's quite a lovely record. Never been much of a fan until now. Underrated IMO

Sufjan Stevens are you there? You can tell me that it's a Carrie and Lowell secret sequel.
