"Ambition has never been a problem for The Dear Hunter and here it’s manifested through a huge range of styles from fast-paced alternative rock, to folk ballads and disco-pop, all served against a rich orchestral backdrop. The band’s ability to merge so many styles, layers and instruments without sounding confusing is testimony to their songwriting and despite having now amassed over a century of songs, the material remains fresh and intriguing."
