    Never Hungover Again isn’t a complete overhaul of the band’s sound, but with all the gentle twists on those charms, it ends up serving as a re-introduction.
  2. 90
    This album comes off as the most definitive and most complete that Joyce Manor have to offer.
  3. The band has continued to expand and refine their ADD-riddle pop-punk into something more substantial and LP3 chronicles the growth in songwriting while maintaining the spastic charm of the band's earlier releases.

    Never Hungover Again is fully-grown and moves at a steady pace, while remaining characteristic to Joyce Manor's roots.

    When Joyce Manor cracks open its sound the results are satisfying despite (or maybe because of?) being delivered in bite-size form.

    Another ostensibly strong album in Joyce Manor's catalog, and one that hopefully doesn't go unfairly overshadowed as well.
  7. 58
    The album’s heavier points tend to slant alternately intriguing and confusing.
