8/10 Dave Staff review, 26 August 2010
This is a really nice collection of lovelorn ballads and moving compositions from Sean Carey, of Bon Iver. Its quiet, understated and to be fair, quite brilliant. It has great production and amazing songsmithery. It has emotion and depth. It's a bit like this reviewer...Ohh!! I'm just kidding. I have the emotional depth of a puddle. All of the songs on this album almost brought a tear to my eye while I was listening to it. I then realized I had my bottom caught in a mousetrap so that explained my watery eye escapades. It is achingly beautiful though and should probably come with a box of tissues. My favourite tunes are the title track, which not so much tugs your heartstrings as wrestles them to the ground, then gives you two dead arms and puts freshly cut grass down your jumper, and track four "Rothko Fields", which is heartstoppingly beautiful. Its a potential classic and a really strong release. Come and cry on the shoulder of majesty...
