Wait for a Light to Come

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ned Raggett
Starting with the airily sung and briskly performed acoustic/electric guitar plus flute rock arrangement of "Evil," Wait for a Light to Come finds the Amazing whipping together six songs for a quick but enjoyable dip into their take on 21st century indie/folk grooves.
