    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.

    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.

    Those looking to rock out won't find many headbanging opportunities here, but Nothing Is Wrong works well as driving music, particularly if the scenery outside your windshield matches the sepia-toned music.

    ["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
  3. It's as close to a perfect Americana album as there's been this year--fans of the California sound from CS&N to the Jayhawks will find much to love.
