"Roots rockers The Pinkerton Raid revive the art of the singalong ... with brand new songs about hope against all odds (cough*, 45 and all that), nightly road trips guided by the stars, and chance meetings with small town locals. Jesse James DeConto, the band's songwriter ... has good eye for a story, wrapping it in poetic imagery. Where the Wildest Spirits Fly is a collection of heartfelt Americana. ... Recommended if you like Wilco and The Band." -- HERE COMES THE FLOOD

"’re gripped right from opening track." -- AMERICANA UK

"Searing and colorful imagery...story-driven material with more to say than a catchy chorus...[in] the tradition of artists — Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Sam Cooke — writing about social change." -- WILMINGTON STAR NEWS

"On album number four, The Pinkerton Raid celebrate the human race as one community, drawn together whether the back story is in an Indiana cornfield (“Windmills in the Fog”), toasting the art of giving with a beer-garden beat (“Sweet Pitchers of Mercy”), or floating 'Stella Maris' on rhythmic waves of guitar notes and percussion. ... Vignettes that search for meaning in the length of a song." -- THE ALTERNATE ROOT
