8/10 Jack Customer review, 24th June 2015
More fully produced than prior discs by this Wilco side project, this self-titled third release is built on the duo's core strengths of crafty songwriting, rich harmonizing, and interlaced acoustic guitars. Autumn Defense then adds lightly detailed piano, flute, and strings, so that the set coalesces into an autumnal cadence of fireside confessions. Think America without the sap. The standout track is "Winterlight," which contrasts a bittersweet lyric with soaring vocals riding a double-timed rhythm section pushed by a "Friday-on-My-Mind" bass line.
