Slant Magazine praises Joe Nichols' album, Old Things New:
- There's a real maturity to the songs here, with "We All Go Home" and "Believers" recalling some of his more "serious" hits without the cloying sentimentality and "Cheaper Than a Shrink" and "Man, Woman," showcasing his sense of humor in songs that don't reduce to simple throwaway ditties…here Nichols continues to emerge as a distinctive vocalist, balancing the swallowed vowels and heartbreak of vintage George Jones with [Brad] Paisley's good natured humor. – Jonathan Keefe
Amazon reviewers also sing the praises of Nichols' past album, saying:
- Joe Nichols proves time and time again that he is the best country singer since Georege [sic] Strait and Randy Travis hit the scene in the 1980's. – D. Ribel "Die Hard Steeler"
- One word discribes [sic] it all...OUTSTANDING! Joe has a smoothe [sic] voice that makes you get into the music. – W.D. Oliver
