  1. 8.0 |   Paste Magazine

    A celebration of music by a band who likes nothing more than to have a good time—and what is more respectable than that?

  2. 8.0 |   Uncut

    Served with such a knowing grin you can't help but love it. Print edition only

  3. 7.5 |   A.V. Club

    Deer Tick’s members act like kids, but Divine Providence is best when they sound like full-grown men

    The group's best album to date

    A set of howling rockers

  6. 7.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Divine Providence is the Deer Tick we’ve always known was behind the chugging, 90 proof country rock

  7. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Setters of trends, they will not be, with this offering. Providers of mindless, chaotic R&R, they most certainly can be

  8. 7.0 |   music OMH

    Overall, their aim to harness their live show appears to be a success, especially on the more rabble-rousing and downright fun bar-side calls to arms that pepper the album

  9. 6.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    At their best, Deer Tick deliver a timely reminder that fun doesn’t necessarily have to translate into a shortage of substance

  10. 6.0 |   State

    They may have taken the easy way by leaving depth and emotional subtlety aside, but the brainless night bar rock n’ roll they’re playing on Divine Providence is not something to be ashamed of

  11. 6.0 |   God Is In The TV

    The problem with Divine Providence isn’t that it is bad, because it really isn’t, in fact, I would go as far to say that it is a good album. The problem is that listening to it is like watching the high school dance scene out of Back To The Future

  12. 6.0 |   Pop Matters

    Divine Providence isn’t about God being amongst us; it’s about being proud of where you came from. So grab a beer or a bottle of Jack (or both) and let Deer Tick entertain you for an hour

  13. 6.0 |   Blurt

    Divine Providence apparently isn't a realm for the faint of heart, but those with the verve to vent their all may find it a welcome retreat

  14. 3.9 |   Pitchfork

    Self-absorbed and even downright hateful
