  1. gives it a: 5/5

    Beyond the things that made Long Live worthwhile, this is the first Chariot record whose gestalt has ever implored me to go deeper. Much like the cover artwork, what could pass as slapdash is connected beyond coincidence. It’s a thoughtful, thought-provoking listen that finally elevates the Cha beyond their contemporaries for me. They finally belong in the conversation.

  2. gives it a: 5/5

    The Quentin Tarantino of albums; this album has it all: a lullaby, western-movie music complete with trumpet breakdown, a Charlie Chaplin speech, and an overall inspiring cacophony of talent.

  3. gives it a: 5/5

    “One Wing” is the sort of release that makes everything else you listen to seem uninspired for a while.

    From production to songwriting to album flow, The Chariot finally managed to capture the bordering-on-insanity nature of their live performance. Josh Scogin has personality in his delivery at a level that rivals “Bless the Martyr…”, and there’s enough behind him this time to make it worthwhile.
