    With a truthful tone and a passionate telling, In the Cool of the Day is good salve for anyone, believer or skeptic.

    Religious music was never a hot button issue, and at no point does this, Moore's latest, feel like anything other than an honest expression of love.
  3. In The Cool Of The Day sounds like an intimate affair, like Moore has called up his friends and invited them over to the studio upon finding the Steinway piano.

    He came up with a good set of songs, but failed to achieve what I perceive this type of music is supposed to.

    With his piano-playing accompanied by Daniel Joseph Dorff's drumming, the arrangements are minimal affairs, placing Moore's voice centre stage and allowing the songs to breathe. [Mar 2011, p.112]

    It's a subtly affecting record, hushed, austere, grasping for simple peace of mind with gorgeously rendered standards. [Feb 2011, p.93]

    While I'm certain that this mode will suit Moore in his future indie folk material that is sure to come, In the Cool of the Day naturally goes from inoffensive to mildly irritating fairly quickly through repeated spins.
