    Amazing CD. The cover of Bowie's "Let's Dance" is beautiful. Go and get this one!

    One of the best records I've listened to in a long time. This CD convinced me to get Transistor Radio and Post War, both of those albums didn't let me down either.

    This is the sort of music a pensive coyboy would play.

    This is a dark night of the soul record, a distant country cousin of Young's Tonight's The Night, but it feels flooded with light and air and space. [#232, p.73]
  2. Ward’s controlled voice never falters or fails, which makes his words of wisdom drill into the soul with unquestionable power.

    As familiar as alt-country has become, Ward makes it worthwhile again. [#16, p.125]
