    Rowe's gravelly baritone is as suited to the shimmering surf plucks of Downwind, or the percussive pummel of Horses as it is to his sombre ballads. [May 2013, p.96]

    The Salesman and the Shark winds up with a gorgeous ebb and flow as well as an undeniably natural sound that suits Rowe's personality perfectly.

    Occasionally, the production overwhelms Rowe with bombast ("Horses"); all the drama he needs is in that resonant voice.

    The Salesman and the Shark is head and shoulders above the work of most of Rowe's peers, and he possesses a strong identity as a songwriter, even if he doesn't feel confident completely relying on it yet.
