    On the evidence of this quite brilliant record, brighter days lie ahead for one young American at least. [Dec 2013, p.103]

    Philly troubadour Dave Hause’s sophomore platter manages to stand proud while casually dipping into drive-time radio (‘Same Disease’) and blue collar balladry (‘Before’).

    Devour is a rock record, full of fine songs--gimmick- ,pretention- and affectation-free. [5 Oct 2013, p.53]
  4. Oct 30, 2013
    Devour is a completely impressive collection from start to finish.
  5. Alternative Press
    Oct 30, 2013
    Dave Hause is a self-proclaimed "rock guy," and he has carefully crafted Devour to remind you of such. [Nov 2013, p.86]
  6. 70
    This album is 48 minutes long, and Hause musically repeats himself just a little more than is necessary. Still, Devour has more than enough quality moments to elevate Hause toward the top of the genre.

    Devour is a fine piece of a work and a definite high water mark of the Dave Hause canon, distilling his pop tendencies into sweetly strong Americana moonshine that will no doubt trouble both the upper reaches of the charts and many an end-of-year Best Of list.
