"[★★★★★] There is nothing minor about The Minor Planets. This is a band who write incredible songs, have a unique feel for music, and are doing something a bit different. [Shadow in the Water] is a disc I will return to many times. It is special."
Paul Riley, Country Music People (UK)
“…an 11-song masterpiece…along with Ray Bonneville’s “Bad Man’s Blood” and the Pines’ “Dark So Gold,” “Shadow in the Water,” The Minor Planets’ follow-up to their 2001 debut, has been my go-to listen the last few weeks. All three recordings are of a piece — well-crafted works of art from veteran songwriters and musicians who’ve obviously worked hard to sequester themselves from the chaos of the outside world in order to maintain inner vision and strength. It’s plain to hear that they’ve weathered all sorts of storms, and the grace that all three mete out is positively instructive.”
