"His debut album... skates dangerously close to self-indulgent pastiche yet contains some immaculately played gems that possess the definitive crackle of old-school analogue tape sessions."

"It is the atmosphere and production that continually impresses... Sure, we know the setting well and Wilson is a little too passive at times, but this is where he wants to be and he fully immerses himself in his passion for sun-baked, country-tinged sounds, wrapped in guitars, pianos and mellowed rhythms."

"Wilson has a rich folk lineage... so it is no surprise that this record is rustic, both in sound and imagery. A carefully crafted album likely to find favour with fans of Wilco or Crosby, Stills and Nash."
