    Despite the scattered feel of the album, its individual components are undeniably solid and easy to listen to.

    Breathing a love lorn vitality into a batch of tunes that rank among his best, he makes obvious his big record collection, but even more than that, his bigger heart. [Fall 2010, p.63]
  3. Stoltz's recreations are means to an end; he wants to write songs about good-old fashioned topics like falling in and out of love that sound fresh enough to make you play them over and over.

    On his fifth full-length, this '60s-pop obsessive mostly ditches the balmy homemade chorales of his earlier work for folk-rock verities, crafting his tightest, fullest-sounding record yet.
  5. To Dreamers is one of Stoltz's most satisfying efforts to date, sounding bolder and more invigorated than nearly anything before it. Yet, when Stoltz sneers "Do you want to rock'n'roll with me?", exactly who's doing the asking gets a little lost in the tune's glammy shuffle.

    Kelley Stoltz is one of the millennium's great unsung auteurs. To Dreamers is frustrating though. [Nov 2010, p.102]

    Not surprisingly, To Dreamers doesn't stray far from what's gone before. [Dec 2010, p.114]
