“NYC resident Coyle sometimes refers to his music as “anti-folk,” but his latest isn’t without Dylanesque and Rhymin’ Simon moments.” – Journal Sentinel, Milwaukee

…like his other releases, it is the urban poetry of Coyle’s lyrics, and his earnest, authentic delivery, that really drive the record. His lyrics are thoughtful and evocative and never sink to the doldrums of coffee shop pretension. “Back Around”, for instance, is a minor masterpiece that details a casual, yet somehow timeless love affair, that even Conner Oberst would admire. 8th-Circuit Network {Music Review}
