    “Fields & Fortresses accelerates from the somber suites into fully electric, foot-tapping rockers like “The Other Side,” with its crackling guitars and hearty vocal intonations. “Don’t Know How” may be one of his most endearing song to date, with its intricate guitar arrangement, its ear worm zig-zag melody through the chorus, and its earnest poetics sewn into his signature lovelorn-philosophic protagonists confessions. When he gets to the quavering lilt of that lyric “…a love song can be made of anything…,” …be ready. And then there’s “Fading In The Light,” with its reverb-soaked vocals and jangly, throwback rock ‘n’ roll riffs and snappy rhythms. , swelling into a commiserating singalong strengthened by the rich harmonies of backup vocals.” -J. Milo, Deep Cutz [deepcutzmusic.blogspot.com]
