“…what the album does is balance neo-folk intimacy with (Mike) Scheidt’s own particular psychedelic lushness.” — The Obelisk


“…mixes acoustic guitars, Eastern philosophies, a Townes Van Zandt-on-Jeremy Enigk sound, and YOB-like structural repetitions into a record that could've come from a 90s grunge hero taking it down a few notches.” — Pitchfork


“… throws the singer out of what has presumably become his comfort zone… leaving him, for the most part, with just his unique, high-pitched voice and an acoustic guitar for a collection of reflective, raga-like, hypnotic tunes.” — The Sleeping Shaman
