Mansion Songs stands on its own as a portrait of Miller's considerable musical and poetic growth over the last nine years.

The 405

There doesn't appear to be any obvious blueprint to Mansion Songs, no falling back onto gloomy, depressive music to convey events that had befallen Ethan Miller.

Slant Magazine
If Howlin Rain likes to draw from rock tradition, they also like to push that tradition to its limit, often creating momentary points of chaos, a sense that the songs could fall apart at any moment.

Mansion Songs isn’t for everybody. However, what it is, is an almost surprisingly durable inclusion to Howlin’ Rain’s overarching collective of available albums, given the band’s tumultuous history.

By embracing classic rock so wholeheartedly, Howlin Rain has become essentially a jam band, with little but its own history to distinguish it from acts like J.J. Grey & Mofro and the dear-departed Black Crowes.
