Critic Reviews

  • It's difficult to detach this record from the harrowing specificity of its backstory, yet Riderless Horse never makes you feel like an intruder.

    Rating: 100/100
  • Riderless Horse is far from an easy listen for obvious reasons. But hearing the 56-year-old Nastasia describe and attempt to understand these stark events is never less than compelling.

    Rating: 100/100
    The Telegraph
  • The cult American singer-songwriter endured 25 years of abuse at the hands of her partner, an experience wrenchingly recorded in her first album in 12 years.

    Rating: 100/100
    The Observer
  • Nastasia has turned her harrowing experiences into genuinely beautiful songs.

    Rating: 90/100
    The Line of Best Fit
  • Riderless Horse is a quiet exorcism, in communion with ghosts, deceptively dressed up in as little and as simple clothing as possible.

    Rating: 85/100
    Beats Per Minute
  • Born out of the end of a mutually abusive relationship and grief/guilt following her partner's suicide, this set of lean, characteristically nuanced, folk-edged songs also signals the start of her recovery, including a renewed love of music making.

    Rating: 80/100
  • Nina Nastasia returns with another strong addition to her superlative catalogue.

    Rating: 80/100
    The Skinny
  • Riderless Horse obviously isn’t an easy listen. At times – as on “Go Away – it gets dirgy. But its truth-hounding also delivers poetry and restful release.
