  1. This debut album from the Manchester trio is a captivating Gothic Americana creation.

    A New York studio may not be the ideal place to summon up the atmosphere of the Wild West, but these desperadoes on Barry Adamson's lable make a pretty good fist of it. [Dec 2009, p.101]
  3. The band cares as much, and probably more, about texture and noise. Each song materializes within its own soundscape. The ingredients are distortion and percussion, in layers that clatter and lurch with unpredictably shifting attacks.
  4. The band are an almost classic example of one element working incredibly well and another almost tripping it up as it goes. What works is the group's collective ear for those previously mentioned sounds and styles, which the trio plays excellently throughout.
  5. Q Magazine

    The debut is a mix of styles classic and unorthodox, mythic American themes and sounds overlapping with futuristic textures. [Jan 2010, p.119]
  6. This is less country than it is music for the country, likely best enjoyed by those who like their music to be spacious and moody, rather than ferocious and threatening, like an album from a band named after a touchstone of the country-rock movement probably should be.
