    One of the album’s more striking elements is its limited instrumental palette.

    Backed by his acoustic guitar, a fiddle player, a bass and little else, Millsap’s record has a timelessness that will preserve it well years from now.

    Millsap’s subtle style allows the listener to discover the emotional vortex of his often confused characters, helping us identify with their motives without casting judgment.

    Parker Millsap's second album is possessed of classic troubadour restlessness, drenched in the Pentecost but headed onto country/folk/blues highways tramped down by everyone from Johnny Cash to John Fullbright. [Mar 2014, p.79]

    The album is full of strong characters and quirky observations.

    Old Time Religion is a finely told American horror story, while Truck Stop Gospel is a stomping study of an infuriating evangelist. Elsewhere, At the Bar turns The Wizard of Oz into a weepie country waltz and Quite Contrary tells of nursery rhyme characters breaking bad.

    Fellow Okie Wes Sharon might be to blame for producing both albums, because the similarity in sound detracts from 20-year-old Millsap's themes of love, redemption, and what passes for spirituality these days.
