    Euphoric at its best and lightest moments ("Fairlane" sweeps listeners up with a bright, infectious melodic arc), quietly ardent when pressed ("Dear Alice" mines memories in the name of saving what was), the lack of flash reflects what it means to seek one's destiny in a place where the dream shrinks more and more each day.

    It is readymade for a kegger; the problem is, on this, their third LP, they have yet to shape their influences into a sound they can call their own. [Oct 2012, p.77]

    The good songs are timeless facsimiles that float out of another era's memory, while the rest of the album's tracks, while well built, recorded, and sung, seem like forgettable, hazy clich├ęs from 30 years ago.

    Unfortunately, not everything works. There a few times when the band reaches too far into the alt-rock zone frequented by modern-day arena acts.

    The worst thing is, for all the nauseating country-rock-lite choruses, this is agonisingly catchy. [Summer 2013, p.89]
