A.V. Club

POST- is an album about finding hope in the future. Not in a passive, pacifying way, but by challenging yourself to step up and take action, day in and day out. While that sounds incredibly daunting—and like a really tiring listen—the album’s most impressive trait is that it makes all that vital work feel joyous and communal.

The 405

POST- has set an extraordinarily high bar for the rest of punk in 2018 to clear.

Jeff Rosenstock albums are always a wild ride. Turns out they’re a darn good way to start a new year, too.

Pitchfork

Whereas any praise of WORRY. likely mandated a retelling of his backstory as an ethical compass and consummate defender of punk’s least credible subgenres, POST- is a confirmation of Rosenstock as one of punk rock’s greatest, most effusive living songwriters. It’s his most easily accessible work yet.

Exclaim!

With POST-, Jeff Rosenstock has done a fine job of making cheerful music for unhappy times.

Northern Transmissions
Jeff Rosenstock manages to take the disillusionment found in nowadays politics and the tremors that effect society around it, and turns it into a defiant, triumphant ode to the disenfranchised.

While ‘POST-‘ finds Rosenstock solidifying his place within punk music, it does not do enough to disrupt the whiteness that pervades a genre which purports to resist structural oppression.

The Needle Drop

The New York songwriter's latest work feels like a pale presentation of the anthemic punk style of his previous record, Worry.

More than anything, 'POST-' sees Jeff Rosenstock coming through with exactly the album that I've waited for him to put out. Rosenstock finds the ideal balance between a strong sound and prominent lyrical content, not allowing one to overtake the other. It's this balance that helps make this album as strong as it is, and it's here where I see him soaring and coming closer to reaching his fullest potential. The stand out track of the album has to be the anthemic "Let Them Win", the ... read more

What a damn album to start the year of 2018 off. My boi Jeff Rosenstock return with a set of pop-punk tracks that surprisingly was quite more diverse than his 2016 record "Worry". With some stellar song/writing and catchy/dynamic production, this album is an enjoyable listen from start to finish. I still prefer his previous record but this is still a fantastic follow-up. Loving this so far and can't wait for this to grow on me more later down the year. :-)
