Dan FogelbergFogelberg's following has gradually mounted since his break from Fool's Gold, and for those borderline admirers this LP should convince that he is a premier writer and vocalist. Not only is he a writer of poetic and passionate love tales, but a singer of force and conviction.

The Colorado-based artist melodically wails his way with a voice that sounds ethereally angelic and laden with throbbing sincerity. His guitar and piano work is first rate while his backup band adds punchy rhythm. Solid production by Fogelberg and Norbert Putnam. Recorded in the Rockies at Caribou. Best cuts: "Nether Lands," "Love Gone By," "Sketches," "Loose Ends," "False Faces."

- Billboard, 1977.

Bonus Reviews!

Fogelberg returns to Norbert Putnam for this effort, which ranges from the heavily orchestrated, highly dramatic title cut to light CSN-style folk-rock like "Once Upon a Time." It's one of Fogelberg's better albums, in spite of his tendency for grandiose statement. * * * *

- Rick Clark, The All-Music Guide to Rock, 1995.

A couple of Fogelberg's albums -- Souvenirs and Nether Lands -- have their moments of fine songcraft that predate his gradual slide into schlockdom. * * *
