"seriously talented" - Flagpole, Athens, Georgia
"...the production is flawless. While I know this is the result of Lopez caring very much about his craft... it can be slightly uncomfortable given the lyrical heaviness of the album. Almost like a photograph of a civil war-era lynching of Confederates set in a golden, hand-crafted frame. It draws your attention very close but doesn't allow you to forget the image. Lopez frames his songs in similar grandeur and, consequently, it's hard to turn away."
