"Similarly impressive is Gerald Collier, whose Breakin' Down pits lonesome highway moan against spiky country-rockisms, silver threaded with ex-American Music Clubber Bruce Kaphan's pedal-steel." - Uncut
"Gerald Collier, once again, wins the Most Underrated Artist of the Year award."
- Clink Magazine
"Gerald's gift for memorable melodies helps his often-bitter lyrics go down smoothly, and many of the songs here rank with his best." - Don Yates, KEXP Seattle
"...Collier can write a song and has a band which does not mess about. This is country-rock in the sense that it's country music played with a tough small-group rock feel - nothing loungey-postmodern going on at all. And Collier's subject matter is the breakdown of the heart, observed with a nasty psycho-anatomical rigour. "Tell Me Why (You Are So Cold)" is a bitterly observed vignette of the aftermath of love and how it - the aftermath - drags on until it smears." - London Independent
"The name Gerald Collier is not one that has ever appeared on my radar, but the man sure has impressive credentials. An EP on Sub Pop produced by Jon Auer, of The Posies, is an impressive a pedigree as you can get. This latest release was recorded in just 3 days and features Bruce Kaphan of American Music Club on pedal steel guitar. All too often records steeped in this level of music business experience disappoint and leave the listener wondering what all the fuss was about. Pleasingly Gerald Collier?s song writing lives up to the hype. " - DW
