“The music of Kristian Matsson (who records as the Tallest Man on Earth) doesn't carry the same loneliness of other heartbroken folkies; Matsson's music, instead, has solitude. Loneliness is a condition, a place you end up and from which you are eager to leave, but solitude is a choice. Like Henry James or Emily Dickinson, who best detail the workings of their mind when they are cloistered away from the world, Matsson is more concerned with a wellspring of autonomous thought rather than the chirpings of modern society.” – Pitchfork

“What's Matsson's secret? Musically, it is hard to tell. For all the influence of Bob DylanNick Drake and their folk antecedents in his sound, he mostly comes across as a one-man Mumford and Sons, albeit replacing the biblical imagery with glimpses of the natural world. His voice has much the same husk and growl, his guitar-playing a similar formulaic attack as he flips between stampeding chords and fluttering arpeggios.” – The Guardian
