The band crafts incredibly tight arrangements of complex, space-age country rock songs that require patience, vision, and time to create. Often, this approach is impressive. And, frankly, it is not always successful.
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.
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.
