"I first caught The Gathering Field in Pittsburgh, and since then I have been hooked. In today's music business, and I know cause I am in it, it is rare to see a band like this. While it is a shame that they have not made it to the major markets, it is probably for the better. Their non-commercial induced music is some of the best I have even heard. The lyrics are so true to life, and the music puts you in a place unattainable by any other means. This CD is absolutely incredible, and if it were possible to wear a CD out, mine would be dead by now. Hats off to The Gathering Field and their incredible music. Buy this album, and never look back. Listen to it like you mean it. You'll be better for it.... believe me. I can't possibly say enough good things about this band, their music, or this album."
A good folk/rock album.

"Starts off so folkie it takes you back to those folk clubs you've visited, and corn fields, not up-beat but so real. The first song is about Jack Kerouac:
"He had a rambling soul, he drank a bottle of cheep wine...
...Under an open sky, he stares with his eyes closed"
Simple but sublime lyrics, - BUT HANG ON after a gentle opening the album's taking off like every lively folk/rock band you ever heard, thumping drums & flicking guitar- edges towards heavy rock but not quite - this, the title track, comes together in a crescendo of crashing Neal Young type guitars.
For the most part it's youthful country rock, forget that I said "it's not up-beat", it is!. Bill Deasy is a great credible lead singer, and Dave Brown can lift-off on guitar. A tight outfit. Wordy songs but not without tune. One or two really good love songs here, and no less than three songs about Jack! There were three used copies on Amazon.co.uk for only £4 each, they've been snaped up, UK fans should now come here. How do you describe an album so sincere? "Un-corny tunes" & "fluctuates between gentle and exuberant" is hardly adequate.
Best "Dylan" since Blood on the Tracks

"This album is awesome. probably the most underrated that I know of. 2 songs Lost in America and Bound to Be are the best "Dylan" I've heard since Blood on the Tracks. When the woman starts singing simultaneoous alternate lyrics on Bound to Be, it sends shivers up and down my spine and brings to mind Simon and Garfunkel's Scarborough Fair and CSNY's Teach Your Children. They didn't make it out to Chicago much so I had to travel to Cleveland's wonderful Nautica Stage to see them. I've only heard them (and William Topley and Kim Richey) played on a Chicago radio station that has since been replaced by music pumped in from LA. It's a crime more people haven't heard this music.
