"There's a level of honesty to Dustin Darnold's acoustic presence that hints the songwriter has crafted his music with meticulous intentions. He's not just a lonesome troubadour with a set of guitar strings in one hand and heart strings in the other. These lo-fi numbers are intentionally sparse, and every beat, each note, and all the open spaces are executed with a surgeon's precision. It's as though the 26-year-old understands that somber mustn't be melancholy, that ambiance isn't always best as mere background noise, and that true sincerity doesn't come in Hallmark card sentiments. Instead, he sounds like a student of Americana music who put years of appreciating folk forefathers into arranging his own contributions to the genre." - Derek Wright, Liner Notes Magazine
