  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (11/00, p.210) - 6 out of 10 - "...An autumn walk through [his] grad-school-addles psyche...showering us in abstractions....Singing softly above economical guitar works..."
    Alternative Press (11/00, p.111) - 4 out of 5 - "...Grubbs takes a crack at alt-folk and proves a graceful crooner of sad-sack ballads..."
    Magnet (8-9/00, pp.74,77) - "...John Fahey-like guitar tapestries of melody and mirth....a lovely, whispery, Southern sky of a record with a quaint urban arch to it..."
    CMJ (8/21/00, p.22) - "...His most approachable outing yet, combining superb and intricate musicianship with memorable melodies and surprisingly sunny lyrics..."
    Melody Maker (8/26/00, p.59) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...Puts Tortoise et al to shame..."
