  • Summary: The debut album for Robert "Chicken" Burke and Simone Felice, who left The Felice Brothers last year.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. The album is at its sweetest with love-laced tracks like 'Water Spider' and 'Summer Morning Rain,' but it truly shines when it tackles deeper issues.
  2. This might be the single most tasteful record of the year.
  3. Their debut turns out to be a lovely slice of Americana, tastefully underpinned by warm harmonies, acoustic guitars and a melancholy yearning for lost youth. [Oct 2009, p.118]
  4. It takes on joy and loss with equal measure, and at its best--'Still Remember Love,' 'Lose Myself'--lands at the intersection of the two.
  5. This is hushed, deliberately paced acoustic music perfect for sitting around a fireplace pondering the coming thaw....As pretty as this stuff is, though, it can get a little snoozy.
  6. When Felice and Burke show a bit more restraint and keep the focus on the storytelling, Gold works as a compelling, soulful folk record.
  7. The songs themselves don’t hold up under casual inspection, let alone eager scrutiny.
