    It's remarkable how organic and right (as opposed to gimmicky) the church voices sound on these 14 melodic folk, spare soul and various-tempo blues songs. [Apr 2006, p.98]

    There's a lot to love about 'Sno Angel... Like You. [#71, p.98]
  3. Fans of Gelb's have to be excited about this because it's perfect, a career high.
  4. Gelb has produced his most focused work in ages.
  5. The soulful harmonies complement Gelb's dry one-liners and restless guitar surprisingly well.
  6. While nothing wholly spectacular, 'Sno Angel is no less an exceptional effort from a charmingly earnest, yet still somewhat self-conscious, lyricist and singer.
  7. Most of Gelb's seven new songs hold their own with four primo re-rolls.
