    [A] consistently nourishing collection. [No. 108, p.53]

    Much like Bon Iver's output, Range of Light delivers a set of songs with a fixed sense of place and a nostalgic sense of time.

    The ease with which you can get lost inside Range Of Light is no dismissable feat.

    Over nine songs, Carey crafts a number of bright, warm, sweeping moments that fit with the album’s theme of the American West, land of exploration and possibility.

    It's a lush, sensuous album that moves through a wide range of styles but stays grounded with natural imagery. [Jun/Jul 2014, p.95]

    Overwhelmingly luscious at times, Range Of Light is a record that musically embodies the art of escapism, even if that does means evading even the consciousness of its listeners from time to time.

    No range of light here, just a wan glow that denies the need for shade. [Apr 2014, p.71]
