    Such is the elegance and detail of Knox’s songwriting and voice – not to mention the exquisite instrumentation – that one can’t help but get swept up in it and extrapolate from it. In that regard, Won’t You Take Me With You is an unmitigated triumph from an artist who continues to dazzle and enthrall with each release.

    WYTMWY is Knox in typically epic form, a suspenseful fusion of country-folk ballads and Twin Peaks cabaret. Bu there's a fresh clarity here too. [Feb 2021, p.88]

    These songs often sound like Broadway-style miniatures tilted at strange angles. [Feb 2021, p.30]

    Daniel Knox is a storyteller who paints a picture with his colloquial descriptions and his deep, husky voice adds an authoritative presence in ‘Won’t You Take Me With You’.

    It may have been written and recorded in double quick time, but Won’t You Take Me With You is still an impressively assured, fully realised record.
