Musgraves is not just an original but very catchy. Pageant Material is a master class in how to produce a commercial album. This is an extremely strong outing that will likely out-do all the achievements of its predecessor. I guarantee you'll be singing it’s a hi-i-i-i-gh time before very long! (4.5 STARS) Duncan Warwick Country Music People
This is an even better album than her last, with more consistency and variety (Billboard4.5 STARS)
This album is comprised of many strands; thoughts, emotions, ideas that are enacted both sonically and lyrically, and delivered with an expression and personality that is purely’s one of the most brilliant records I have ever heard...What’s a sophomore slump? - For The Country Record
