    Guilt Mirror’s musical confusion overall is shattering, there are moments of violence, others of beautiful fragility, and it’s a great big mess of ideas all thrown against a wall until they’re smashed into tiny pieces... lucky wall.

    Despite the album's daunting length, Harte rewards listeners with some of his most affecting and expressive music yet.

    Musically, Guilt Mirrors is all over the map in the best possible way.

    His strengths as a songwriter occasionally break through this morass, but the album is overwhelmingly concerned with anger and confusion.

    Guilt Mirrors covers different facets of Harte’s unfiltered work ethic, cobbled together into an unpredictable jumble of distinctive idiosyncrasies that somehow brings more clarity into his thought process.

    As generous as Guilt Mirrors might seem, it puts an oppressive onus on the listener to find it.

    The fact that it’s alienating, strange, impossible to get through and occasionally radically boring isn’t a slight, because that’s not the point. It’s too much and too real and too close and too far away.
