    Matt Berry is clearly a legend of comedy, but this album is at once humorously, creatively, and musically wonderful. It feels to me like he is writing an alternate soundtrack to The Wicker Man (the original, not the Nic Cage silliness), in which the villagers are the heroes and you just want to join in the revelry. If you are at all pleasured (I mean that word choice to bother you, be bothered) by a return to the folky freedom of the 1960's, layered into a poetic telling of A Midsummer's Night Dream, mixed with just the slightest tinge of mescaline; this album is for you.

    While you may never be able to fully forget that Berry's tongue is in his cheek, the love, attention to detail and panache of Kill The Wolf make it a trip worth taking. [Summer 2013, p.95]

    What we have here is prog-folk of the highest order.

    Kill The Wolf is another ruralist fantasy furnished with tales of witchcraft and maypoles. [Aug 2013, p.67]
