“His tunings are counterintuitive and mesmerizing; his use of partial capos and muted strings is novel and intriguing. But to Jones’ great credit, those only feel like tools for telling stories.” - Pitchfork

“It’s incredibly calming to watch Glenn Jones play acoustic guitar... there’s nothing flashy about his style, only careful consideration as he gently hops over the frets like a lily-padding frog” - NPR All Songs Considered

“Glenn Jones has a purist’s mastery but an inventor’s imagination” - The Wire

LP pressed on virgin vinyl and packaged in a heavy stock jacket with inner sleeve including notes and tunings of each song and free download card.
