    Beats Will Oldham at his own game. Reminiscent of old american traditionals, especially when Rosie Thomas' vocals transcend time and space.

    Not since I See A Darkness has someone so succesfully spun the thin thread that lies between hope and despondency. Far and away his best work in years; Jurado hits both points high and low (albeit more frequently) with comparable eclat.

    Not for the faint-hearted, Damien Jurado is a habit which won't necessarily bring joy to the listener. But once acquired, you will find it hard to kick. [Apr 2003, p.106]
  2. The Wire

    Jurado's spare, edgy songs are miniature masterpieces of mood and character. [#229, p.68]
  3. The sparse and largely unobtrusive music, and Jurado’s wanting vocal range place the emphasis on storytelling, one his strongest assets. The results, however, are a mixed bag.
