    This is a brilliant album created by a music virtuoso that will cement Tyler’s solo reputation earned from his 2010 debut, Behold the Spirit.

    Impossible Truth says more with six strings than most records manage with a thousand words. [May 2013, p.79]
  3. Tunes are built slowly and satisfyingly, ebbing and flowing into oceans of ambient sound. Through these layers, though, shine frequent flashes of utter brilliance.

    Tyler's command of his instrument is commendable, but his ability to use it for a compelling, lyrical collection of instro cuts is even more so. [No. 96, p.60]

    Impossible Truth is an unusually articulate trip. [May 2013, p.85]

    The Impossible Truth is more accessible than Behold the Spirit, but it is easily as adventurous, taking hold of places, spaces, and sounds, reimagining them and altering them just enough to make the entire recording sound at once immediately familiar and somehow wholly other.

    This is a fine soundtrack to a road movie that's yet to be filmed.
