  • Summary: The third album for the Gainesville, Florida-based rock band led by John Orth and Jeff Hays features a new line up.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 5
  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. For many listeners, his mannered delivery may prove as off-putting as Oberst's own vibrato, but for these songs, it sounds fittingly evocative, as if only he could sing them.
  2. Its appeal is immediate, rather than slow burning, and you can see it gaining fans who are less transfixed by eccentricity, more interested in tightly constructed songs. Yet at the same time, the words and images in these songs are deeply personal and self-revealing in a way that, I think, the first two albums were not.
  3. The result is an album that’s vigorously lily-livered, with hardly a dull moment to be found.
  4. They've built up a new Holopaw around them, expanding their sound in the process.
  5. Oh, Glory. Oh, Wilderness. is the best record we’ve got from a band that was always solid, and also a statement from these guys.
