However you choose to describe it, or whatever your preconceptions of Hawley and his music, this is definitely an album you should bend a considered ear towards.

The overall sound is in some ways richer than its forerunners, but corralled by its guitar, bass, and drum core, the raw bursts of spacey lead guitar and sonic effects carry real impact.

No matter the locale, Hawley’s latest is every bit as universal and timeless as past efforts.

It's great to hear Richard Hawley expanding his horizons and there's a lot to enjoy in this album.

Sky's Edge is an over-correction, if not an out-and-out miscalculation by Hawley of his own strengths.
