The San Francisco Chronicle said of Rowe's soon to be released album, "Magic is quiet, dark beauty with a dash of dirge. When it comes to heartbreak, Sean Rowe performs the soundtrack" while My Old Kentucky Blog offered, "...it packs one soulful and powerful wallop. Each song is a hard-won victory; battered, bruised but not yet defeated. It's nearly impossible to hear Rowe's resonant baritone (particularly on numbers like Old Black Dodge) and not immediately be reminded of vintage idiosyncratic Smog or even the threateningly-personal records that Leonard Cohen fashioned early in his career... Keep an ear to the ground for this one.
