““Colors and Shapes (Prologue)” sets the tone, with moody piano playing under Bell’s ghostly, Thom Yorke-esque croon as female backing vocals, guitar, woodwinds, and string and horn arrangements slowly seep in.”
"This track is dreamy and haunting, with an incredible presence. The term singer-songwriter is overused and I roll my eyes a bit when I see it, but this one is worth your time."
"Bell has used thirty-seven minutes of storytelling to paint a picture adorned with thick brushstrokes, a gentle and whispery voice, and assumed real-life stories...And what’s best? Throughout the album, it seems as though Jon is sitting across the room, singing to nobody else but you."
"Brooklyn based singer/songwriter Jon Bell has a folksy, mellow, soft tone. It’s the kind of stuff that’s great to listen to late at night with your headphones on."
