Press

"Atkins' breadth – both vocally and musically – on the album is astounding, with the buoyant pop of "Listen Up" and brash, Dap-King–assisted funk of "Brokedown Luck" melding with the mournful nostalgia of "I Love Living Here (Even When I Don't)" and rootsy country vibe of the title track." - Rolling Stone

“Goodnight Rhonda Lee may be [Nicole Atkins’] masterpiece... one of the year’s most original pop records." - Nashville Scene

“A moving, intensely personal and wildly creative set that ranks as one of 2017’s finest works." - American Songwriter (4 out of 5 stars)

“... artful craft, burnished not only by the symphonic production, but [Atkins’] Brill Building-style grasp of rich melody and sturdy structure.” - NPR First Listen

“Aching pop-soul bathed in the nostalgic warmth of another era… [with] imprints of Dusty Springfield or Carol King…” – Uncut

“Channeling Dusty Springfield… sounds like the soundtrack to a long-lost Mad Men scene.” -NME

“... stark, frank songwriting, which is underpinned with glorious soul music that evokes classic Stax and Chess recordings.” - Drowned In Sound (8 out of 10)

“Opening at full tilt with ‘A Little Crazy’, a kohl-eyed Patsy Clineish tragic belter, Atkins’ fourth album sets a high bar. But she clears it with soulful, oddball, Jersey-girl-in-Nashville aplomb.” - Mojo (4 out of 5) 

"Let's be clear, this fourth album is a masterpiece." - Rock & Folk (France; 4 out of 5)

"How Nicole Atkins Quit Drinking and Discovered Her Inner Soul Singer Singer says 'Goodnight Rhonda Lee' with help from Chris Isaak and a hip-hop producer she met in rehab" - Rolling Stone Feature 2017
