"Being a male/female duo within music is not a new phenomenon nowadays; many of these acts have come and gone along the years. Troy and Paula Haag are one of these couples; the two are certainly not the first married duo to come along in the music business, and they will certainly not be the last. The difference between them and others, however is that Troy and Paula Haag fill in where others within this classification seem to fall short. Troy supplies the majority of the vocals, while Paula provides backing vocals on each song. They are the contemporary Simon and Garfunkel. Their laid back, acoustic style is older yet their way of interweaving various instruments into their songs and their sound that veers more into folk and Americana is more modern. The subtle flaws and creaks within Troy’s vocals provide an even folkier sense to the album. And Paula’s lower tone does well to complement Troy’s voice, never overpowering it or taking anything away from any one song."
