Q (Magazine) (p.106) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The blasted wreck of the title track and slow blues of 'Corina, Corina' sum up everything that's good about this collective, jamming around a melody and giving everything to the song and not the ego."0.912872

The songs of dirt-road troubador John Prine are malleable -- simple, elegiac tales of people living out simple lives."Pitchfork (Website) - "Abandoning the ethereal folk of Bon Iver, Justin Vernon invests 'Bruised Orange (Chain of Sorrow)' with an earthy gravity, packing in a novel's worth of detail in just four minutes."Record Collector (magazine) (p.89) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Respectful covers abound...with the ever-improving Justin Townes 'Son Of Steve' Earle especially affecting on 'Far From Me'..."Uncut (magazine) (p.92) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] stirring salute to the unflashy genius of John Prine."0.9101293
