    What truly makes the album memorable--and what makes it arguably Bondy's best--is the atmosphere that pervades every song.

    Believers sounds much more like Bondy has simply followed his own muse for a change, and the results reveal his confidence was well founded.

    Bondy trudges along without much to believe in, but his instilled confidence tells otherwise.

    Bondy's third record isn't drastically different from its two predecessors, 2007's American Hearts and 2009's grossly overlooked When The Devil's Loose.

    Believers isn't a rousing album. Its allure is slow-burning, almost unnoticeable.

    Auguste Arthur's third, and best, set of lonesome-pine Americana. [Jun 2012, p.100]

    There are a few highlights, such as the gorgeous "Surfer King," but the rest is reverb-drenched murk. [Oct. 2011, p. 108]
