"You wonder, though, whether or not this too will all be folded into part of the Misty universe. The Hotel Album. The One Where He Got Real. Can you really trust someone like this? Retreating to a hotel room to write an album assisted by a cocktail of drugs and heartbreak is not exactly an original rock’n’roll proposition. But even that cliché seems to be part of his desire to forego a too-clever concept. Instead, he basks in something more universal, trying to seek that one marble of truth about love we all process as individuals but possess as a collective." - Jeremy D. Larson, Pitchfork

"‘Pure Comedy’ dazzled in its complexity, whereas ‘God’s Favourite Customer’ shocks in its simplicity, a concerted back-to-basics effort drawn up over two months in a New York hotel room that operates within a far smaller, more concise, and at times more claustrophobic palette than before." - NME

"As ever, the music is lush and 1970s-styled, albeit not as lush as before: it’s only rabbit fur in texture, rather than mink. But Tillman’s voice – which rarely gets mentioned in considerations of his success – is as wonderful as ever, clear and true, and warm and approachable, even if close examination reveals the deep damage beneath the veneer. So is the car crash real? If it’s CGI, the effects are better than ever." - The Guardian 

"The very things that shouldn’t quite work, that would backfire in lesser hands, are precisely the things that work about Father John Misty — his clever, careful balance of sincerity, performativity, acerbic remove; his savvy approach to media; his ability to direct and/or willfully implode his own narrative. These qualities have made his turn as FJM feel unstoppable thus far. And with his new album, God’s Favorite Customer, he not only has built on what came before, but also inverted it." - Stereogum
