    The best moments are soft and strange. "The Corner" is a fabulous piece of folk understatement and emotional ambiguity, while the brilliant "Freefall" showcases Branan's willingness to stretch his voice to odd, ugly places in the service of transcendence. [No.88 p.53]

    Each track is different from the last, yet the album maintains a cohesive identity. [Jun 2012, p.76]

    Mutt is a mess of an album, but I mean that in the best way possible.

    A mongrel that rewards repeated spins with an understanding of Branan's many influences and an appreciation for his largely impressionistic, thought- provoking words.

    It's not an entirely off-putting mix, but it's only after a few songs that one starts to get a handle on what Branan's up to.

    That [metal] grind is almost gone from Mutt in favor of a more mellowed mainstream sound, but his storytelling style has become razor sharp. [Aug 2012, p.95]
