Critical reception

Professional ratings
Review scores
Wall of Sound6/10[8]

Stay received positive reviews. Wall of Sound in a 6/10 review said: "If you love the Australian indie rock sounds favoured by Triple J at the moment, this album is for you. It’s emotive, uncomplicated and consistent. If you like your rock heavier, then maybe give it a miss."[8] Rating the album 8.5/10, Alexander Crowden of Beat said: "With Stay, Luca Brasi emerge as one of the country’s best rock bands, period."[5] Hysteria rated the album 7/10 and praised vocalist Tyler Richardson saying: "As a vocalist, Richardson is at the top of his game on Stay. He carries the same raw bite and thick Tassie accent as is signature to Luca Brasi, but LP4 presents him biting with more passion than punkiness."[6] Jonty Cornford of KillYourStereo scored the album 65/100 stating: "Given their track record, this isn’t so much a dip in quality as it is a gentle leaning back on the work that they’ve done to get where they are today."[7]
