"[Scotland Barr] serves up colorful boozy tunes... through his spirited (and varied) roots-rock sound, ably abetted by his trusty, talented band, the Slow Drags."

- Michael Berick, L.A. Weekly.

"Barr's stories, tunes and vocals would be more than enough to sustain a crackerjack solo act; that it's all backed up by a fluid, fluent combo boasting ace chops and tasty, well-placed harmony vocals makes for an embarrassment of riches... highlighted by Chris Hubbard's rippling-water piano flights and the deft guitar interplay between Zach Hinkelman's electric and Bryan Daste's pedal steel..."

- Jim Musser, No Depression.

"[Scotland Barr & The Slow Drags] mine roots music, mutating centuries of tradition with a modern sensibility much like the Band did - with a gravelly voiced singer and an ear for imagery. It's a heaping mound of Americana - tied together by a warts-and-all earnestness and Barr's knack for detail..."

- Ap Kryza, Willamette Week.

"With his gravelly voice and songs about hard luck and hangovers, [Barr's] transformed life's scrapes and scars into a mighty fine new album."

- Barbara Mitchell, Portland Tribune.
