". . . one of the year's best albums." - The Unblinking Ear
"These nine songs don’t stick around long enough for eye-rolls to register, and the brevity of the album as a whole might point to its success, but the impeccable craft and the earnest spirit poured into the mold is all their own. . . The notion of ‘90s indie rock might as well be folk music but goddamnit, this is my folk music, and I’m sure more than a handful of you wouldn’t argue that it’s yours, too." - Dusted Magazine
