AllMusic Review by

Formed in college like so many other bands, this outfit delves into folk-rock, also like so many other college bands. Thankfully, their songwriting ability (a duty shared by three of the four members) is good, and they have developed a tight, accessible sound. What is missing is a distinct character to set them truly apart from the pack. Lead singer Reid Genauer hits all the notes, but his vocal ability is nothing special. While album opener "Roads" has an easy forward motion and some catchy hooks, the disc gets nondescript as it moves on.
