    From Dagger:

    [DeRosa’s new LA environment] informed his latest record and opening cut “Fools Razor” is easily one of his best and showcases his deep croon (the guy is obviously influenced by the Brill Building greats). “The Sun is Crying” was even more dreamy while “When Daddy Took the Treehouse Down” is more loping and playful (which he co-wrote with Magnetic Fields Stephin Merritt) and the gorgeous “Dancing in a Dream” (a duet with Carina Round) is a feast for the ears. A few other sparkling gems include “Give Me One Reason,” “Coyotes’ and “High & Lonely” but honestly there’s not a bad track on here.

    From New York Music Daily:

    The album’s opening, Lynchian, 60s noir pop ballad, Fool’s Razor establishes an atmosphere of anomie and defeat despite its towering, angst-fueled sweep. DeRosa’s chiming twelve-string guitar mingles with glockenspiel and piano on The Sun Is Crying, a sad waltz with a late 60s Laurel Canyon psych-pop vibe and a shout-out to Leonard Cohen. Then DeRosa and Round reach for unexpectedly blithe, surrealistic, mariachi-tinged Vegas pop with When Daddy Took the Treehouse Down.
