8/10 Jack Customer review, 3rd February 2018

Lots of folks were blown away by the first album 'Trace' and this one is a worthy followup. It's not going to hit 'em out of the park on the first listen like that first album did, but don't be alarmed, this one's a grower. Jay knows his way around a song, a tale he wants to tell and how he wants to sing it. Straightaways has always somewhat reminded me of Young's Harvest, with its searching lyrics and country-rock sound. Farrar writes songs that bear repeat listening, sinking deeper into your brain every time you hear them.
