    ["A Little Bit Of Everything"] is a thoughtful, mature conclusion to an album that seems to summarise one of the more welcoming trends in American rock
  2. It's doing more with less, on a level that simply demands attention. That, ladies and gentlemen, just might make Dawes something you'll pass on to your children.

    Tay Strathairn's work on the keys shines on just about every song; Wylie Gelber maybe one of the most tasteful bassists ever, and Griffin Goldsmith's percussion is rock steady and incredibly impressive, especially considering his young age. But it is the sum of all these parts that makes Nothing is Wrong something truly special.

    With Nothing Is Wrong, Dawes comes far, and appears to be only getting started.

    This is one of the freshest and a non-mentally taxing albums I've heard in a long time. It's nice to see there's are still some musicians breathing life into roots Americana ala Jackson Browne or James Taylor. The wordplay in some of the lyrics where a little awkward but you can appreciate Taylor not using the standard I love you's or the like. Definitely worth the price of admission. Full Review »

    Simply one of the best alt-country-americana-indie-folk albums of the last few years. They're onto something unique here - The combination of stellar melodies and the stark simplicity of the arrangement/production is quite compelling. Full Review »
