    A promising debut and one more considered, nuanced, and realized than most bands achieve deep into their tenures.

    Colored Emotions is a promising starting point for this young band who will hopefully find more ways to get the boots scootin' in the future.

    This record represents a bold, imaginative first step for a young band that seems poised to take their sound anywhere.

    Instead of a collection of singles, each song [on the album] develops an element nascent from the beginning, "Headlights," into a deeper exploration. The downside of this is that all the songs begin to blur together.

    A constant sense of discovery makes Colored Emotions an easy record to keep returning to. [Apr 2013, p.107]

    The sound of this record is one that may have gotten them a record deal, but will not get them much of an audience.
  7. 60
    The AM radio pulse of the title track, the San Franciscan sway of ‘Old Friends’ and the loveliness of ‘Country Queen’, with its sweet acoustic fade into ‘In The Rounds’, is overshadowed by a nagging lack of imagination.
