"...everything that's right about the new country genre that shuns cowboy hats
and beer guzzling for a roots return to true American folk music."
The Village Voice
"...wields an uncommon devastating power..."
"Drew de Man is an excellent songwriter with attention toward lyrical realism that would have made Theodore Dreiser proud."
"Mijn advies is dan ook deze geweldige cd te kopen bij een concert van de band – sla je twee vliegen in één klap. Voor de thuisblijvers zoals ik, is er gelukkig nog de internetwinkel."
"Drew de Man, is quite a storyteller. His colorful tales—even more than his folksy, well-rounded melodies—will draw you in and make you want to find out what happens next."
"De Man's tales of woe and hardship interspersed with imagery of animals that are symbolic of a spectrum of ideas and emotions add a playful but profound element to the music. The songs are grand, swaying numbers that pull from the same bucolic countryside as artists such as Will Oldham, Wilco and Band of Horses.
