Critical Reception[]

"Hold On 'til the Night" has received mixed to positive reviews.

Us Magazine rewarded the album with three stars and a positive review, claiming that Chance "outdoes himself with 10 originals".

Entertainment Weekly gave Chance a positive review as well by complimenting his mature voice, writing: "Chance reveals a surprisingly mature voice on 'Hold On 'Til the Night' ('Heart Like Stone' provides a welcome touch of outsider brooding), though the Facebook-spurred melodrama of 'Unfriend You' reminds listeners that he is, after all, just a kid." The overall grade for the album was a B.

John Terauds of the Toronto Star gave it three-and-a-half stars, writing: "The boy's debut 10-track album is a solid effort that owes a massive debt to the boy bands of the 1990s" and ended with, "This YouTube phenom is standing on solid artistic ground here."

Rolling Stone gave the album a two star review, stating that "the 13-year-old is anything but threatening on this potential blockbuster of a debut", however the Rolling Stone community gave the album four and a half stars.

NY Daily News also gave the album two stars explaining that "the singer's androgynous pitch — which lies well north of Justin Bieber's — limits his ability to make the CD's love songs credible for anyone over his own age".

Metacritic gave the album a 61 out of 100 based on 4 reviews.
