    Quality songwriting, vocals, musicianship and an ethereal production have made ‘No Recover‘ a beautiful, peaceful and surprising record

  2. 9.0 |   Exclaim

    The sense on this wondrous and haunting album is that he's a man and a songwriter that lives to command life and forge new ways forward, disproving the merits of convention by simply reflecting upon how falling in line is not for him and, damn it, it won't have to be for his family neither

  3. 8.0 |   All Music

    It's a powerful chapter in Bachmann's expansive discography, and while it might require a closer listen than some of his earlier material, the rewards are as fulfilling and slow burning as the songs themselves

  4. 8.0 |   Mojo

    He's still a whiz with a tart lyrical couplet, too. Print edition only

  5. 7.0 |   Uncut

    Lyrically, he hasn't lost the Archer's edge - the sonic tenderness through which such sentiments are conveyed, however, is reflective of a wisdom that comes with hindsight and forgiveness. Print edition only

  6. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    Eric Bachmann might subvert reality or he might just ignore it, but he has some unexpected strength to offer on his latest album, No Recover
