  1. Wilderness is another absolute gem.
  2. Languidly pretty. [21 Jan 2005, p.88]
  3. Though the songs eschew familiar structures, their triumphant, readily accessible moments occur with surprising frequency; multiple hooks litter the lengthier compositions, and the shorter pieces usually contain at least two winsome passages.
  4. The consistency of Wilderness' eleven songs is almost overwhelming.
  5. Wilderness is Prewitt’s most accomplished solo effort to date. He has craftily corralled the large scale orchestral sweep of White Sky, but kept the intimacy of the guitar/voice confessionalism of Gerroa Songs.
  6. A fantastic work of art from a modern master of pop music. [#9]

    Could be his best work yet outside of S&C, including what he did with the Coctails
