Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.74) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "His seventh is his most vivid and varied yet, full of exquisite guitar work, gem-like songcraft and inspired covers..."

Uncut (p.68) - "Vocally, Ward sounds like Paul Simon....Go past the tone of his voice, inhale the poetry, and you'll taste a sweeter, less mordant Leonard Cohen."

Alternative Press (p.83) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "A WASTELAND COMPANION is a reminder that Ward is one of indie music's most capable singer/songwriters....A welcome return to form."

Magnet (p.59) - "[With] a moodily atmospheric production, heartbreaking vocals and genius finger-picking."

Billboard (p.28) - "Best of all is 'Wild Goose,' where Ward's various talents come together in a woozy rush of hushed harmonies, sparkling lap steel and Old Hollywood strings."

Q (Magazine) (p.101) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he real wonder here is to be found when he drops a gear into hushed beauty and sun-dappled loveliness."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.87) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] revels in the layers of experience overlaid on life, building up texture, building up meaning, building up songs."
