AllMusic Review by

TG offers 11 ghostly folk songs on this Audio tape, reaching perfection with a minimalist style (guitar and vocals only), engineered in lo-fi with a muffled but not charmless sound. In this album, his melancholic little pop songs contain no choruses, and are developed in a musical structure with poetry-like vocals on top -- perhaps what the Mountain Goats would sound like if covered by Cat Power. The strength of Audio does not lie in the riffs but in the fact that all the tunes might be considered hit singles (not in the commercial sense, but from a music lover's point of view). A nice tape to play when you are depressed, for it will comfort you with the idea that the world we are living in is depressing.
