"stripped free of studio frippery and all the better for its carefree simplicity" **** Q

"a masterpiece that will not fade in time." **** Maverick

"there are moments of transcendence here (on 'Nostalgia and 'All Love Knows' in particular) when everything is just so... perfect that it's all too much and a lump appears in the throat. An album of quiet power." **** Rock 'n' Reel

"strong melodies that at times evoke images of Richard and Linda Thompson... as strong a collection of acoustic folk songs that I have heard for a long time" 8/10 Amerciana UK
