Pasadena Weekly, 4 Stars:
For the first time the acclaimed Virginia quartet incorporate percussion, along with producer Sam Kassirer’s keyboard — and, in the process, deliver one of the year’s finest, most beautifully written and performed Americana releases. Eric Brubaker’s vigorous fiddle solos enhance the title track’s epic sweep; “Take Me to the Ending” and “Broken Mandolin” (the latter inspired by Anthony Doerr’s novel “All the Light We Cannot See”) haunt with vivid imagery and guitarist/banjoist Trent Wagler’s warm, appealingly burred baritone; “Till No One is Free” floats on the band’s sibling-like harmonies with some kind of alchemical grace: “Tell me again that love will always win/ Even if you don’t know if you believe.”Elmore Magazine:
"The Steel Wheels are back with their first studio album in four years and it represents a significant leap in sound. Some of these textures are soothing, and most are just simply gorgeous."

"The Steel Wheels kicked off their 2017 tour with a rousing cd release show in front of a packed house at the Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville, VA. The band hit the stage with a truckload of energy and the crowd fired it right back to them, artist and audience pushing each other to greater heights." Live Show Review
