    At its core, Warm Blanket is a tremendously revealing album.

    Warm Blanket is a tiny masterpiece of unassuming modern pop that you'll overlook at your own risk.

    The lush production and whimsical tone complement May’s discerning ear for song arrangements, making Warm Blanket his most endearing effort yet.

    On his third-full-length, we're getting a sense of the lonely undertones of such sunny music. [Aug-Sep 2013, p.98]

    On Warm Blanket, May revisits many of the same themes that he did just over a year ago, only with fuller orchestrations, and a partial explanation for his love of the mundane.

    There is an amiable and glowing exterior to Warm Blanket that does offers some occasional sustenance--just don't expect anything to really get your teeth in to.

    Sadly, these tracks don’t have any of the spontaneity and unexpected surprises that the warmer months bring with them, and instead these songs are plagued with familiar strains and arrangements that we’ve heard done far better in the past combined with overly simplistic, lovelorn lyrics that fail to make you think of anything other than bad middle-school poetry.
