— “One of the things I most appreciate about Bonehart Flannigan … is that in the Lincoln stable of folk and bluegrass artists, he definitely has a corner of it: with his rapscallion loserdom … He has a very specific voice.”
— “[‘Sweet Release’] is a soul song, and it feels so much more soulful with the whole arrangement in mind.”
— “There’s a feeling I caught pretty starkly listening to the album … you’re horribly sad or in a bad way, but there’s something that gives you a warm feeling.”
