All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Sky was one of the numerous folky singer-songwriters to be placed in the new Dylan camp during the '60s and, for that matter, ever since. Although the comparison with Dylan is basically unfair, and his talents were not without modest charms, they didn't measure up to Dylan in the slightest.
