"Taking an approach similar to their fellow Wisconsinite Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), Field Report recorded their sophomore album atmospherically—often, the most striking moments are those that break structure and expand into points of ambiance. A dancing slide guitar and bellowing synthesizer build up the album’s highest moments, with “Wings” taking center stage with its layered synths and “Michelle’s” Wisconsin romance—the only place where “I love you like a lamprey” can really make sense—glows with its subtle groove."

"As the album continues, the songs, for the most part, get darker. The pain comes out in a very beautiful way, notably so on certain tracks, like “Ambrosia” and “Wings”. I love how honestly and precisely Porterfield expresses his pain. It’s gorgeous, internal, sad and sweet."
