"You could be forgiven for not noticing, but earlier this year Adams started writing good songs again. (...) The second leg of Adams and the Cardinals' three-albums-in-one-year gimmickathon, Jacksonville City Nights, is even better. (...) Jacksonville City Nights is a well-lit snapshot of a talented mythmaker modeling his best honky-tonk garb-- and this time, holy shtick, the tailoring is almost impeccable."
Marc Hogan - Pitchfork Media
"Taking cues from Southern bards such as Gram Parsons and Townes Van Zandt, Jacksonville City Nights is also classic Adams -- earthy, rich with pathos and almost disconcertingly dedicated to the idea that life's only two constants are losing a lover you probably didn't deserve in the first place and losing yourself in the bottom of a fifth of Jack Daniel's."
Jenny Eliscu - Rolling Stone
"The mediocrity of an overkill of material burns itself out with a return to the heady highs of Adams’ Whiskeytown days. Ah. It’s nice to have Ryan back."
