Relase Day Love for Robbie Fulks


August 27th, 2013 by Rami

Holy Smokes! The writerly class has chimed in big time today regarding Robbie Fulks' brank new Gone Away Backward!

Check out some of these reviews. We'd blush if we could remember how:

"Gone Away Backward may be Fulks' most cohesive, best-realized album yet. More than anything, it's good to have another album from one of country music's best-kept secrets."--The Onion A.V. Club

"Gone Away Backward may also be the best album Fulks has ever produced, if for no other reason than it's both pure and unfettered."--Blurt

"Nearly perfect songwriting from a Chicago Americana staple makes Gone Away Backward the kind of album you wait to hear…This Steve Albini mixed record is absolutely full of fantastic songs and perfect performances that should be a staple of every music fans rotation this year.--Earbuddy

"The craftsmanship is top notch and each track pulls you into every word. … Each track has a purpose and gives this record its depth." -- The Firenote

"It's so hard to describe Robbie Fulks' sound, as it's so pure and authentic, so it's probably best to just listen and allow yourself to be consumed." -- The Horn

"…a John Prinean grasp of small details and characters that speak to greater, sadder truths." --Paste

"The level of artistry is so complete that it suggests a world in which Fulks isn't a household name is somehow upside down." --Wall Street Journal (everyone's fave music mag!)

"On Gone Away Backward Fulks has taken that iconoclastic history and processed it through the filter of gorgeous Americana. The result: an album where he sounds more like himself than ever before. For a guy with nothing left to prove, Fulks sure seems determined to show off." --PopMatters
