    These songs may not scan perfectly or make much objective sense, but they feel very real and relevant and uncalculated.

    These songs are fiercely internal, which also makes them remarkably hard to shake--here, Roberts is singing about the no-place of everyplace, the desolation we all know.

    Luke Roberts's debut can dig up a well of such intimate, homegrown sounds and songs.

    His music is unobtrusive without being boring, polite without being gutless.

    It's a promising - if a little lackadaisical - debut. [Dec. 2011 p. 97]

    While sometimes left wanting for redeeming bells and whistles, where Big Bells & Dime Songs sporadically strikes gold is its distillation of tumbleweed folk Americana.

    As it stands, it's pleasant music to fall asleep to, but offers little to keep you awake. [Oct 2011, p.108]
