  1. This is a Junip record, but it's hard not to see Fields as another solid entry in Jose Gonzalez's discography, and a fitting next step in a lot of ways.
  2. Uncut

    Gonzalez's cooing voice tends to sing the same pentatonic scale over the same minor chords on every song, which does make things a little repetitive. [Oct 2010, p.98]
  3. That surprising lack of offensiveness, though, isn't replaced with anything to particularly excite, leaving it a tasteful aural curtain of an album without much of a view beyond.

    This album is amazing. The songs are very relaxed and laid back, but also very good. If you are an idie fan, you will like Fields! If I wereThis album is amazing. The songs are very relaxed and laid back, but also very good. If you are an idie fan, you will like Fields! If I were to compare them with someone, I would say they kind of sound like Bon Iver and Iron and Wine. Full Review »
