  1. The stories are told over attractive folk/country/rock arrangements, which to some extent ameliorate the gloom.
  2. Even with producers Billy Harvey, Charles Arthur, and Gurf Morlix lending their talents, Everything You Love plays seamlessly, like one of Lucinda Williams' classic early albums, pristine, honest, and lingering.
  3. Mojo
    This set stands out as Cleaves' most engaging release since "Broke Down" back in 2000. [Aug 2009, p.104]
  4. Combine the above average writing with the production skills of longtime Cleaves collaborator Gurf Morlix (who also contributes his legendary guitar on Everything You Love Will Be Taken Away) and you’ve got yourself a frontrunner for Americana album of the year.
