about

"The psych-rock Ty Segall-ish guitar on songs like "Due Time", "Letter To My Son" and "I'm Not Him" (note: I could use a whole big ol' bucket of this song) elevate this album from a great alt-country folk album to a truly unique collection of songs. Songs like "On Alright" and the homesick/lovesick "Back East" are pure country folk, allowing Elliott's clever lyrics to take a centring role. "Golden Ring" is classic country and shows the range of this album—both impressive and appreciated."
-The Coast

"Elliott’s unique songwriting style is a definite focal point of the album and draws you in like a good book."
