The album so far has a score of 76 out of 100 based on 29 "generally favorable reviews". Real Detroit Weekly gave it a favorable review and called it "a mosaic masterpiece of [Adams'] past works. " The A. V. Club gave it a B+ and said, " On the whole, Easy Tiger isn't quite as strong as 2005's Cold Rosesâand even that release was naggingly inconsistent. But Adams has a history of making scattershot records: 50 percent brilliant, 25 percent okay, and 25 percent hackery. By the standards he's set for himself, Easy Tiger is one of his best, if only because it beats the percentages. " The New York Times gave it a favorable review and said, "It is focusedâread: not insanely self-indulgentâin a way that recalls albums of his like 'Heartbreaker' and 'Gold'. " The Observer gave it a score of four stars out of five and called it Adams' "most rounded creation". Uncut gave it a score of four stars out of five and said, "The real triumph of Easy Tiger is less rooted in the sound, more in the attitude. " Slant Magazine also gave it four stars out of five and said that what the album "lacks in craft or measure, it makes up for in raw inspiration, which makes it all the more addictive. " Now also gave it four stars out of five and said of Adams and his songs: "The Sheryl Crow duet works where his Norah Jones collabo didn't; 'I Taught Myself How To Grow Old' is classic tortured Adams, and 'Pearls On A String' is a rewarding reflection of the time he spent hanging out with Willie Nelson. " Sputnikmusic also gave it a score of four out of five and said it was "at least Adams' best release since Love is Hell and it may even be the long awaited successor to Heartbreaker. " The Village Voice also gave it a favorable review and said, "The lived-in songs and careful presentation of Easy Tiger make for one of the strongest records of his second career as a solo artist. "
