Critical receptionEdit

Jon Pareles, music critic for The New York Times, gave high praise to McKee's singing and the band's musicianship, but described the album as something of a disappointment in that "the band's songwriting has grown weaker": whereas the songs of the debut album were filled with "down-to-earth details that make country music hit home", those of Shelter "are much vaguer – they're about abstracted emotions rather than recognizable people".[4]
