    Brokeback And The Black Rock reveals itself as a flawed yet still sporadically rewarding long-player.

    Black Rock is still filled with McCombs' spacious, isolating tracks ("Tonight at Ten," "Gold!"), which are best for lonely winter evenings.

    Polished arrangements in a mix of menacing, reverb-drenched grooves and languid shimmer. [Mar 2013, p.98]

    It is by no means below-average, but you may develop a fondness for the inconsistent qualities of Field Recordings from the Cook County Water Table, an album where each track--for better or worse--would plunge.

    This is desert blues that doesn't just trudge into the horizon, but stops to admire the sunset. [Feb 2013, p.69]
