The critics are giving the album a resounding thumbs up, check out the quotes below:

USA TODAY
***˝ “Kearney's lilting hit Hey Mama, written for his wife of a little more than a year, only scratches the surface of this excellent album from the Nashville singer/songwriter…”

Newsday
“There's a giddiness to much of Mat Kearney's Young Love (Universal Republic) that's infectious.”

Entertainment Weekly
“…punches up the rhythms on his latest batch of earnest folk-pop ditties, riding a sunny hip-hop beat on ‘Hey Mama’ and juicing ‘Count On Me’ with some African guitar action.”

Metromix
“…bouncy, hand-clap-fueled summer jams that dominate the album…”
