"A huge influence on REM. God bless Vic Varney."
~ Peter Buck, REM
"A startling natural resource of songs which defy description: introspective without being pretentious, narrative without being cliched." ~ Flagpole Magazine
"...Vic Varney has resurfaced with a gorgeous solo album...that crosses Nick Drake and James Agee..." ~ Holly George-Warren, Village Voice "
...inventive mix of traditional songwriting with an inventive, rich lyricism...bears resemblance to the jazz-influenced side of Nick Drake, Van Morrison and Joni Mitchell." ~ Flagpole Magazine
"Varney's intuitive finger-style guitar is equally evocative of Mississippi John Hurt and Jobim, a good fit for his gauzy, Nick Drake-inspired vocals." ~ Nashville Sound
"Killer..." ~ Nick Tosches
