    This is a just a great sounding record. In truth; just great, period.

    It's accompanied with a swing and a fingerclick all Waterhouse's own and could turn out to be the soul album of 2012. [Jun 2012, p.88]
  3. 80
    Waterhouse's own voice is slightly under-recorded, but the musical settings--the understated Telecaster twang, the honking horns, the rumbling tom-toms--always churn with the right degree of roadhouse charm.

    Time's All Gone takes you back in the day and pulls you into the moment all at once.

    Waterhouse's pleasingly wrecked guitar playing is matched by singing that teeters out of control every so often, like he's trying to tamp down a wild animal in his throat.
  6. Aug 13, 2012
    Time's All Gone is single-minded, but this is often good for a debut--better for a young artist to do one thing well then several things in mediocre fashion.

    Nick Waterhouse's debut album gives listeners a more rocking, lo-fi alternative in the growing marketplace of slick retro R&B revivalism. [Jun 2012, p.158]

    Waterhouse's big lunged holler is efficiently exciting, but his debut album isn't so much -- 12 songs, but 12 variants on the same song. [Jul 2012, p.85]
  9. The latest retro sensation, Waterhouse is a 25-year-old from San Francisco ... who's trying to sound like Ike Turner circa 1958. And he's pretty good at it.

    Unremarkable and uninspired.
