Elsie received mostly positive reviews from music critics. At Metacritic, the album has an average score of 76 out of 100, which indicates “generally favorable reviews” based on 15 reviews.[4]

Andrew Leahey of AllMusic rated the album four out of five stars with this comment: “Elsie functions best as a display of Fallon’s underused bottom register and acoustic songwriting skills, proving that slowing things down once in a while can still be a punk rock move.”[6] Writing for Alternative Press, Scott Heisel writes Elsie is “better than just about everything the Gaslight Anthem have done to date. Perfect for night drives on long, winding roads.”[7]
