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]
