Five stars from Noah Simmons -

With one listen it became one of my favorite releases of 2012....Highly Recommended
My words will not do these songs or this album justice......that will require your attention and listening...If I could give it 10 stars I would.....but never mind the stars. This is not a fly by night album and these are not fly by night songs......these songs stick, these songs breathe......the characters, lyrics and melodies get inside and stay there. My favorites are..."Lone Pine"..."Candle In The Window"...."Cup Of Strong Black Coffee"....."Sage After Rain"...."Green Heart" ( Denise Williams nails it with her review ) and "I Despise Flies" ( Which could be my theme song in the Summer )...can't say enough about the songs, stunning work from beginning to end. My appetite for music is insatiable......albums with songs like these are the reason why. Truly thankful that someone bent my ear Ben's way......his other 3 albums are also Highly Recommended!

Molly Secours writes:
Big sky and Beautiful songs from a storyteller, poet, songwriting doctor-
Even if you’ve never reflected quietly under a chilly Montana night sky, Ben Bullington’s latest CD Lazy Moon
might just inspire a mysterious longing for a home you’ve always craved and kinfolk who reside purely within your imagination.
Masterful musicianship, haunting vocals and songs that tumble easily one after another lull you into remembering characters from a familiar movie that hasn't been filmed. Clearly the songwriter, poet, doctor is a man who observes the invisible, listens to the unspoken and converses with stars as a matter of course.
Just a warning: Ben Bullington is soulful, reflective, funny and may cause you to spend long hours pondering the distinction between longing, thirsting and remembering. If one is so inclined, sipping a thimble of whiskey in front of a roaring fire is recommended while listening.

Denise Williams says:

Just under the wire and straight to my top 5 of 2012.
Yes, so Ben just released this as the sand runs out in the hourglass of 2012. This year's time may be short but Ben's music is the forever kind. It sinks deeper in my heart with every listen. Like Billy Joe Shaver songs, these are honest poetry wordsongs that paint pictures so true you go there in your mind each time you listen, building relationships with the people and places he describes. Songs that make you feel things for people you've never met yet recognize when he shares their stories. Because they are all our stories. Tracy Nelson sings background vocals on Candle In The Window and I am reminded how her song Salt Of The Earth speaks of treasures like herself and Ben. What a delight to hear and think of them together. Sage After Rain and Green Heart are my other two favorites but there are no disappointments. Start to finish, these are songs that will remain with me and inform all my days to come. How do you thank an artist sufficiently for a gift like that? Thank you, Ben.

Texas lays claim to it's Townes Van Zandt's, Guy Clark's and Jerry Jeff Walker's, Montana's got all three wrapped up in one guy with Ben Bullington. A fine songwriter with a pure and road tested voice , these songs burrow under your skin and stay there. Highly recommended. Tom Garnsey

Late contender for album of the year -
Fourth outing from Montana's finest storyteller sees Ben in fine form. Opening with the title track, Lazy Moon features some fine banjo plucking and some great lyrics. As always there is some great humour "Their hairy legs, their paper wings, their creepy compound eyes" Ben nails it when he describes why I Despise Flies. On my favourite track, Green Heart, Ben sings of young unrequited love as a young man rides his sorrel many miles only to find that it has been a wasted journey, "should have listened to you Dad" he sorrowfully sings. I highly recommend this album as I do Ben's earlier three powerful releases. A top artist who deserves success. Gary Hanna
