“On the title track, Tyler Merriman sings, “If you have to ask / then it’s probably true” in a moment that drips with heartbreak, even though the line doesn’t necessarily hold up to intense intellectual scrutiny. It’s a line you just sort of feel. “If You Have to Ask” becomes a sort of eulogy (with a partner on the back half of the album in “Stop Trying”) for something that remains just beyond the listener’s grasp.”
