    It's pretty, non-threatening, and your mom might enjoy it, though don't let that be a criticism. [No. 93, p.53]

    No boundaries are broached, but everything works just fine. [Dec 2012, p.69]

    Union's production and technical minutiae are immaculate, but as always, those are checks that bounce without the song ideas to cash them.

    Union is a pleasant listen, but never quite reaches the anthemic heights the band is trying for.

    Lacking the jangly, well-crafted gems that made Morning Comes strong, the album sounds B-side-ish at times.

    Guitars jangle and fuzz to no clear purpose, the rest of the instrumentation plods behind, and singer Wayne Petti fails to convince. [Dec 2012, p.103]. [Dec 2012, p.103]
