as communal creation, psychedelia as mystical quest, psychedelia as a
roiling tangle and psychedelia as a euphoric, entranced sprawl are all
encompassed in the music of Jesse Sykes and the Sweet
Hereafter...There’s nothing neo- about this band’s psychedelia.
-The New York Times
"alternative country, no...more like alternative universe.. a sprawling psych rock vision..."
"This is a complex, fascinating record that punches the shoulder for attention. As subtle as it is hypnotic, mixing delicacy with confidence and hope with fear.... unlock your senses, and wrap yourself in this intricate web of aural imagery"
- Consequence Of Sound ****
"flush with cavernous sonics and complex soundscapes, it's 58 minutes of aural cinema for the ears and mind"
"Whether the sonic setting is one of doomy distortion or fragile fingerpicking, Sykes remains a truly unique vocalist whose dusky voice is capable of imparting a transcendent, almost spiritual quality to almost any tune it touches."
