    There is self-deprecation and honesty to In an Open Field that combines with musical prowess to form a thoroughly enjoyable, thoughtful record. Few writers possess the melodic ability and communicative skill that Nicholas Krgovich does. He remains one of the finest pop songwriters along the coast.

    The soft rock/cosmic country angle of In an Open Field is another chapter that further cements his mastery as a singer, composer, and producer.

    Krgovich reflects wryly on his own situation, the perennial underdog whose day might be just around the corner. [Jan 2018, p.23]

    His breathy singing is equal parts Jens Lekman, Saint Etienne and Vic Reeves’s club singer, which undermines the teenage existentialism of On the Main Drag but suits the wide-eyed simplicity of Country Boy. Nevertheless, Krgovich’s meticulous, subtle production is frequently brilliant.

    Cloying, ultimately fascinating. [Feb 2018, p.99]
