"Ally in the Sky certainly contains its share of American nostalgia, augmented with the familiar suspects (pedal steel, acoustic bass), yet isn't hell-bent on milking sympathy. Yes, there's repetition and contemplation, but there's also an incredible amount of joy: The pieces burst rather than brood. Looking at the performances on Ally in the Sky by veterans like Rob Mazurek and Fred Lonberg-Holm, one sees revelry and eruptive sound. The tradition of each intricate guitar part is latticed with banjo arpeggios and cello harmonics; there are multiple phrases and ideas in each song, something of a departure from the current aesthetic".
