Paul Barr from Reading called the album "a great follow up" to their debut saying "Here are new songs with added stylistic variations and instrumental colour but retaining that familiar Teskey Brothers sound" believing producer Paul Butler "has helped push the band to new heights".[6]

Dan Condon from Double J said "All the songs here are solid, there's nothing offensive and there's nothing ground breaking. The Teskeys know where their strengths lie, they know what they like, and they stick to it."[7]

Zoë Radas from Stack Magazine said "Its sweet '60s syncopation, dreamy rock 'n' roll, romantic Van Morrison-esque rhythm and blues, and tender neo-soul compositions elevate the boys' former folk leanings into absolutely gorgeous new territory." adding "It's full of stand-outs".[8]

Josh Hinton from Culture Fly said "Run Home Slow isn't fresh and it isn't hip, but who needs to be those things when you can be timeless?" adding "Class never goes out of style, and on this evidence, the Teskeys have plenty of both to spare."[4]

Harriet Wolstenholme from Go London said "The Melbourne outfit find home in a sound that fuses the laid-back spirit of an Aussie rock band and the soul music of a bygone era. The result is a wide-ranging album destined to soundtrack every hipster romance." concluding with "For a blues album it leaves you feeling far from it".[5]

Zach Edwards from Forte Magazine said "Run Home Slow is a beautiful, well-crafted record full of character, space, simplicity, heart, and soul; The Teskey Brothers once again blurring the boundaries of time and genre in the clearest, most enjoyable way possible."[9]
