"Debut solo release from Charles Burst, formerly of the much-loved Brooklyn band the Occasion. For all of that group's psychedelic exploration, they always had a knack for hovering around the more sun-burnt and desert wind-swept margins of Americana, and as Burst steps out front on his own we find him bringing that whole area of interest way more into focus, combined with a much tighter song writing effort than his previous associates ever evinced. There's a real satisfyingly forlorn country vibe throughout the album, but he also somehow manages to evoke a bit of the sound and desolation of John Lennon's first solo LP. It's a great and rich combination, and a compelling exploration of some of the more dusty margins of American music." - Other Music
"Charles Burst drummed and sang in the (much missed) Occasion, but those in the know had more than an inkling that Burst is a songwriter at heart. He now sits at a piano, when he isn't playing guitar that is, and if his clear-sky melodies don't immediately resemble the Occasion's dramatic psych-pop, they have a similar way of rolling out and spreading over you." - Time Out NY
