The Lion's Roar received general acclaim from music journalists.

The Guardian awarded the album 4 stars out of 5, commenting that it was "a bigger, better record than their debut, rounded out with the confidence of maturity and a smooth, assured indie-country sound."[6] musicOMH was similarly positive, stating that "this follow-up could be the album that sees them nudge the likes of Laura Marling and Mumford and Sons out of the way in order to claim a place at the top table."[4] As with the band's previous work, critics praised Klara and Johanna's singing, with The Independent highlighting the band's "clear, characterful voices, employed in beautifully modulated, bell-like harmonies."[7]

As of late 2012, the album holds an aggregate score of 81/100 on Metacritic which indicates universal acclaim.[1]

The album was reissued in the form of a special edition box set on 17 September 2012, featuring additional tracks and a music-video DVD amongst other items.[12]

Rolling Stone Magazine named the song "Emmylou" the 10th best song of 2012.[13] At the 2013 annual Grammis Awards, the album won three awards, including album of the year, pop of the year and best album composers of the year.[14]


The album went straight to #1 in Sweden in its first week of release, topping the Swedish Albums Chart.[15] It also reached #35 in its first week on the UK Albums Chart,[16] and has sold 76,759 copies in the UK as of June 2014.[17]

Worldwide, the album has sold over 250,000 copies.[18]
