Critical Reception[]

"It Goes Like This" received positive reviews from critics.

Steve Leggett of Allmusic rated the album 3.5 stars out of 5, saying that "It's a solidly professional outing, featuring all three of his singles and other tracks of similar construction, and it's full of energy, good humor, and the kind of backroad good-old-boy wisdom that everybody seems to love these days, even if it feeds more off nostalgia than reality."

Giving it 4 out of 5 stars, Matt Bjorke of Roughstock called it "a very good, musically diverse debut album, an album which should find some sort of an audience."
