“Ziggy Alberts has always imbued his art with a special aura – this ineffable warm glow resonating throughout his songs – yet never before has he shined as bright or sounded as bold as he does on his fifth studio album. The coastal folk singer/songwriter turns his visceral inward focus out on society and the world at large in searching for freedom, a record whose powerful messages of sustainability, peace, justice, and understanding are sure to resonate with all who listen.”– Atwood, UK
“Alberts has proven time and again that his back-to-basics approach to production and songwriting has left him one of the most reliably authentic artists on the scene.” – Pop Wrapped, US
“For fans who’ve been following Ziggy's career from day dot, his increasing popularity wouldn't come as a shock. To everyone else, the Ziggy story is probably still something of a surprise. He's a self-made success, and it's a grassroots swell plenty of people are getting behind” – Triple J
“Folk-hewn but modern-facing, his work sits alongside those early Ben Howard cuts or even Jack Johnson, that kind of slick but still endearingly earnest musicality.”- Clash, UK
