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

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

    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.

    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.

    Night Moves rely on the sound that got them signed rather than pushing themselves in a new direction, and the results are not as exciting as they could've been.

    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.

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

    It's full of moving parts and the type of effortless transitions between songs that makes the album much more than the sum of its parts.

    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.
