"Comfortable darkness is a worthy backdrop for Spectator… St.Louis’s dream-pop act is a midnight kiss on record, and anointed with a country balm live."
—Christian Schaeffer, Riverfront Times
"Dreampop bands rarely get both sides of the hyphen right… it's a comfort that Spectator makes its recording debut with such a rich, elegantly produced piece of mood music."
—Roy Kasten, RFT
"Spectator's Music is as beautiful and enigmatic as rock gets."
—Roy Kasten, KDHX
"Combining flute‐like keyboards, guitar and even electronic autoharp, the band has developed a sound that's both lonesome and comforting, and should appeal to fans of the eerie jazzy style of Mazzy Star and Cotton Jones."
