Praise for William Elliott Whitmore:
Â "Aside from this album (Animals in the Dark) - which, at under 40 minutes, is far too short - a William Elliott Whitmore concert ticket might just be the best 15 bucks you'll spend all month." - PopMatters
Â "And though these stark folk/blues tunes could be a century old, his tales of desperation, death, and despair crackle with agitprop punk urgency." - Spin
"With his just-released fifth solo effort Animals in the Dark, it's easy to hear what the fuss is about... If a guy like this showed up on American Idol, he could give Paula Abdul a nervous breakdown."Â - Time Out Chicago.
"Whitmore's baritone is a magnificent, even frightening instrument, impossibly thick and husky, deep and somber in a defiantly ageless manner." - Slant Magazine
"there's straightforward beauty in his down home blues and an uncompromising punk rock soul." - Jambase
