"Mat Kearney delivers nostalgia perfection on Just Kids. His lyrics are intimate, his emotions are infectious and his feel-good pop will make you dance."-NewReleaseTuesday.com
"Lyrical depth, clever production, and Kearney's impeccable sense of melody and hook all combine to make Just Kids an excellent example of a pop album done the right way, and it may be Kearney's best work since he first burst onto the scene."- JesusFreakHideout.com
"Experimenting with a cacophony of sounds from 80s-pop to rustic folk to contemporary EDM to 90s-soul-rap, there isn't a dull moment on this record. And to add further zest to already a spicy record are the vivid images and picturesque descriptions. All of these thus make Just Kids a gorgeous three-dimensional sonic autobiography."-Hallels.com
