Rogers has been chosen as a Tidal Artist To Watch (RISING) for 2017 and as a Google Play Music 2017 Artist To Watch. Vevo, Pandora, the BBC and numerous publications - including Billboard, V Magazine, BaeblePigeons & PlanesIdolator, Paste and more - have also tipped her as an artist to watch.  "(Maggie Rogers') voice is mesmerizing... musicality so layered and complex, said NPR, which named her as one of its Favorite Musicians of 2016and included "Alaska" on its Top Songs of 2016 list- listen to Rogers interview on NPR's Weekend Edition.  The single also showed up on year-end lists by such outlets as Gorilla Vs BearW Magazine and Stereogum. A critic for The New Yorker said, "('Alaska') pushed me forward in 2016." Baeble observed, "It's not often that a truly special artist comes along. One that captures your full attention. One that makes the world shake with a single song. One that completely embodies a free-spirited energy and defines artistry. But Maggie Rogers is one of those rarities."  V Magazine praised "Dog Years" as "another stellar track" and Billboardhailed it as "a blissful sonic journey," noting, "'Dog Years' solidifies (Maggie Rogers) as an artist to watch (and with a close eye, at that)." While Paste declares, "'On + Off' is Rogers doing pop, and doing it better than most. (She) is batting three for three right now, and the signs don't point to her letting up."  Pitchfork declares Rogers is, "standing at the intersection of so many genres (pop, folk, soul, and dance), (her) music is united by the brazen heart she wears on her sleeve."
