    The keening askance of his voice, celestial choirs and brittle hesitation of his guitar all speak of terrible demons exorcised, and when that all comes together on Brother or opener Part One: The End, maybe only Josh T. Pearson can touch his pain. [Aug 2012, p.84]
  2. It shows a musical maturity way beyond its creator's years.

    It's a soulful country stroll, which favors heavily on career building and that is something that Dylan Leblanc is sure doing, and quite swimmingly if I might add. Bravo.

    Cast the Same Old Shadow ultimately crumbles under the weight of its own despondency.

    Cast The Same Old Shadow is a more complete work than Pauper's Field, the arrangements fuller and the songs more tightly knit, but it can still be laborious.

    LeBlanc is clearly too aesthetically skilled to give up on the future. But it doesn't appear he is having fun at present.

    LeBlanc's garbled vocal delivery only serves to obscure weak lyrics.

    This is a strong record. We put it on while driving up an endless logging road on the way to the middle of nowhere. Reminds me of Radiohead if they were a country western band. Haunted but in a good way. Expand
