Still is the BoDeans' 8th full length studio album. It was released on March 4, 2008. It peaked at number 194 on the Billboard 200 chart and number 30 on the Top Independent Albums chart.

Reception[edit]

Music critic Mark Deming, writing for AllMusic, stated: "The scrappy enthusiasm that fueled the BoDeans' best music has given way to a more measured and mature sound in the 21st century, but Sam Llanas and Kurt Neuman are still capable of rocking a bit when they feel like it (cue up 'Lucille' for a taste), and the emotional ardor that's always made itself known in their songwriting is as clear and present as ever... Still is well worth a listen for BoDeans fans, but it falls a few notches short of what these guys can do when they're hitting their stride."[1]
