"An absolute gem - a completely stunning debut album"
Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2


"... the album I've listened to the most this fall is by The Cactus Blossoms ... It's true and traditional country, folks”
Craig Shelburne, Country Music Television


“It's easy enough to phone in a cornball imitation of old country ... It's another thing entirely to live and breathe the craft of writing and singing a good country and western song as The Cactus Blossoms have done"
Nikki Miller, City Pages (Minneapolis)


"The Cactus Blossoms have quickly turned into the Twin Cities' most beloved new traditional-country act”
Chris Riemenschneider, Minneapolis Star Tribune



"Stunning debut [5 stars]”
Duncan Warwick, Country Music People (UK)


"... harkens back to the roots of country with their earnest songs and pristine harmonizing”
Chris Roberts, Minnesota Public Radio


"They sound like a jam session in Hank Williams’s basement, but they didn’t become a sensation by pure imitation. Their edge is real, their harmonies hard-earned."
