  1. Just as David Tibet uses English folk to create his own apocalyptic mythos, so Wood takes the bare bones of Americana and makes something personal and timeless. [Oct 2008, p.58]
  2. 80
    His debut for Thurston Moore's label is another walk in the forest of heavy psych rock and avant folk, that blurs the boundaries between the timeless and traditional and the tres moderne. [Nov 2008, p.100]
  3. 80
    This first widely available release is a superb distillation of the duo's talents. [Dec 2008, p.112]
  4. There’s something deeply captivating about Wood’s songs, and they’re brought to an appropriate close with a tightly wound sequel (of sorts) to the album’s opener, 'Water II.'
  5. This very fine album takes you into the light, points out the lovely view, and encourages you to stay a while.
  6. No massive steps forward, admittedly, but I think Wood can justify exploring this patch of ground for a short while yet.
  7. It’s a soothing cushion of chaos, like a bloody valentine, a buzzing saw, and an amazing star exploding into particle dust.

    Boring----didn't see what the hoopla was about--a VERY poor man's Bon Iver.
