Memories Are Now is Hoop’s best reviewed album to date.Drowned in Sound gave the album a 10 out 10 rating, and said,“Past, present, and future rest patiently before Hoop, and she’s weaved them all into her most endearing album yet.” The Skinnyalso gave the album a perfect score (5/5), calling it a “gorgeously delivered elegy to heartbreak and loss; powerful, perfectly executed songs to bring comfort and strength to the weary, broken and scorned.”
Meanwhile, Loud & Quiet named Memories Are Now it’s “Album of the Week,” and raved, “One of the most engagingly idiosyncratic and refreshingly broad collections of solo singer songwriting in recent memory.” And NPR Music added, “In both content and construction, Jesca Hoop's songs practically burst with ideas: They're as strange and smart and heartfelt as they are gorgeous, and that's saying something.”
