Op zijn vierde plaat onder de naam Rose City Band treedt Ripley Johnson weer in de voetsporen van bands als Flying Burrito Brothers, The Grateful Dead & Ricky Nelson wat resulteert in een collectie prachtige psych-country songs.

Spill Magazine ****

"And yes, Rose City Band does follow in the footsteps of the likes of Flying Burrito Brothers, ‘acoustic’ phase The Grateful Dead, and of Ricky Nelson, but they have created their own niche in there, with particular signature guitar work from Johnson and his subdued, mellow vocals. Works anytime."

Gost Cult Magazine ****1/2

"Psych-country rock trips don’t come any more sublime than this glorious helping of absolute porch and twang. Come join The Garden Party (Thrill Jockey Records), keep your eyes on the skies and your feet floating just off the floor, in cahoots with similarly-minded varmints, free spirits seeking simple pleasures."
