    It’s an album custom-made for deep headphone listening, and Tuttle and his cohorts pack the stereo field with incident and instrument.

    While Mmoss created a small but memorable body of work, Doug Tuttle proves their former guitarist has the talent and the vision to create music just as remarkable all by himself; hopefully, he won't have to have his heart broken again in order to deliver another set of music this engaging.

    Doug Tuttle carries much of MMOSS' fuzzy nostalgia—it just does it through a one-man show.

    It's a good sound, and he has past form here. [Apr 2014, p.120]

    These moments feel like indulgent outliers to a typically controlled and compelling record, but even at its most indulgent, this record remains a solid and charming set, one that marks a fresh and exciting new start for Doug Tuttle as a solo musician.

    The result is a dazzlingly crafted bunch of hazy, West Coast pop gems stuffed with Santanaesque six-string wizardry. [Mar 2014, p.91]

    The record's very nice, but swimming alongside adequacy rather than soaring for the top isn't a wonderful career move.

    Some may find Tuttle’s hushed vocals a bit too insubstantial to last over the course of a whole album, and others may be turned off by all the psych trimmings. Yet fans of MMOSS will find much to satiate any need for a new fix and there’s enough evidence on this debut to suggest that Tuttle could well start to emulate those he holds in thrall, given time.
