    It's all Iggy-growl motorik country-boogie and modal psychedelic blues jams. [May 2014, p.96]

    This is a record you could play on the car stereo whilst burning up the miles on the Tennessee interstate, and it’d never sound wrong.

    Quite aside from the technical brilliance of its execution, Doubled Exposure is a weird boogie album of immense humanity and warmth, driven to a great extent by Shuford's irrepressible charisma. [Mar 2014, p.63]

    Its consolidation of antiquated and contemporary music is generally inventive, occasionally poignant and always entertaining.

    A record that may occasionally get on one's nerves, yet undoubtedly overflows with vitality.

    Double Exposure can sometimes come off sounding precious, a bunch of genre studies without that mysterious extra something--this grit ain't turning into a pearl. But when they stretch out, as on "Mandorla At Dawn," The Helix move with loose-limbed grace. [Mar 2014, p.83]

    The country reggae of the title track may be too far for some, but mostly Speer's country art-rock with a side of Southern fried is damn tasty. [Apr 2014, p.106]
