"Roman Candle is a bright spark, one that has not diminished since its release or the loss of its author" Treble Zine, 10/17/04
"Large and epic, but tense and claustrophobic as well, and gratefully, it's as close to Elliott as we've ever been"Filter Magazine, 9/4/04
"The low-fi yet meticulous arrangements only add to the sense of isolation and the poignancy of the songs" The New York Times, 10/18/04
