    It's Canning's guitar work that makes Chill hum, and the embellishments are enough to separate it from the growing crop of Fahey followers. [No. 104, p.53]

    [A] likeable, meandering, bedroom parlor-pop outing.

    This is a bedtime record, in both the complementary and dismissive senses of the word: it invites you to relax and soothes like a warm cup of tea, but can cross the line into powerfully soporific territory.

    He’s taken a sharply intimate and original turn from his debut solo effort and the result is a catalogue of 14--surprise!--super-chill tunes, consistent front to back, although none necessarily a standout.

    By being so low-stakes, the album struggles to justify itself as anything more than a cozy sweater’s worth of songs.

    At first, the minimalist acoustic guitar and Canning’s murmured vocals sound almost nonchalant, but his deft playing and nuanced arrangements elevate tracks like However Long and Bullied Days.
  7. 60
    Sure, there are flashes of brilliance where studio trickery elicits intriguing headphone moments but these are by-and-large in the minority.
