His best songs conjure images of the American landscape (the corner store, the jukebox, the filling station), images he weaves together with his subjective experience, the way Bruce Springsteen does …this offhand, conversational style is Talley’s greatest charm; he talks to you as if he knows you.
— Joe Blum, High Fidelity
