The third studio album from Swedish singer/songwriter Kristian Matsson, better known as the Tallest Man on Earth, eschews the urgency and austerity of 2010's The Wild Hunt for a more relaxed and conversational vibe. More meditative and intricately arranged than its predecessors, There's No Leaving Now is set for release in summer 2012.
Q (Magazine) (p.110) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Featuring] Kristian Matsson's way with a breezy three-minute pop song, best evidenced on the wistful lament 'Revelation Blues.'"
Mojo (Publisher) (p.94) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] moves him nearer the front of the pack as his sound expands. Not least in that shift of focus is the lovely title track piano ballad..."
Uncut (magazine) (p.84) - "Matsson still strips it back at times, switching to a delicately pounded piano for the affecting title track and a simple melodic guitar for the soul-searching 'On Every Page'."
