  1. Superwolf contains some of [Oldham's] most startling work yet.
  2. Superwolf is collaboration in the truest sense of the word, and the talents of the two musicians involved feel revitalized and meaningful in ways that they may not have for some time.
  3. Soft and subtle, Superwolf is the kind of record that unwinds slowly, and is best enjoyed over multiple listens and, unsurprisingly, many glasses of wine.
  4. Superwolf is Americana at its most grim. [Apr/May 2005, p.134]
  5. 80
    In this lunar setting, Oldham's visionary, spooked words are lit up with renewed clarity. [Feb 2005, p.78]
  6. Has the evocative tang of something ancient and the folk-rock idiom of the modern age. [Feb 2005, p.103]
  7. Full of sombre, skeletal and obliquely confessional songs, it's a crafted collection with ruminations on sex and loss. [5 Feb 2005, p.50]
