    With its smoothing of rough edges, it's likely this record will split opinion, but there's much to admire for those--like its creator--willing to burrow. [May 2004, p.107]
  2. White covers much the same ground... but it's a testament to his mastery of Southern-gothic atmosphere that his banjo, melodica and pedal steel musings on Jesus and haunted love never fail to raise goose bumps. [24 Jun 2004, p.177]
  3. Isn't intense enough to demand listener attention, isn't wandering enough to be hypnotic, and isn't melodic enough to be immediate. [#7]
