No Resolution - Very Good, Based on 4 Critics

Drowned In Sound - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Over a career that spans 20 years fronting Cursive and The Good Life, as well as releasing a clutch of albums released under his own name, Tim Kasher has explored the fractured human psyche in a body of work that ranges from the merely great to the truly exceptional. His last, 2015's Everybody's Coming Down didn't stray much from Kasher's well-worn themes, mind, and perhaps suffered for it. Nor does No Resolution: in its cynical dissection of human relationships the singer returns to the same territory he mined to such exhilarating effect way back when with Cursive's Domestica and on solo release The Game of Monogamy.

Based on rating 7.9/10

Tim Kasher's musical visions have always held a cinematic bent. His work over the past two decades has been typically marked by musical suites and cycles, oftentimes allowing the moan of a cello or oboe to take the place of a huffy lyrical missive. Rarer are the moments when he can pull his expansive scenes into focus without the swagger and rage of his usual full-time band Cursive, but Kasher's balanced, orchestral No Resolution is an exception to that rule.

AllMusic - 70
Based on rating 7/10

Following a more exuberant sophomore LP that diverged from his debut with conspicuous synths, Cursive and the Good Life frontman Tim Kasher returns to a more orchestral palette for his third solo album, No Resolution. Its 15 tracks also serve as a soundtrack to a film by the same name, Kasher's debut as a writer/director. A character drama revolving around a strained relationship between fianc├ęs, it's an anxious set with lyrics that struggle with trust, hope, and existential meaning.

Their review was generally favourable

Tim Kasher is a man who has taken on many different roles in the music scene, from the emocore of Cursive to the more musically subdued, but no less bitingly honest, The Good Life. With his latest solo album, No Resolution, he turns the volume down, adds what sounds like a small orchestra, and creates one of the most intimate sounding albums of his career. The lyrics, as always, create deeply personal snapshots of his life and the lives he brings to life.
