Bill Binkelman, Zone Music Reporter Review:
“Eschewing the relaxing "norm" for painting sonic portraits of nature, guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Gerhard Daum spreads his composing and performing talent across a wide and deep landscape on Rural Renewal. I heard echoes of such diverse albums as Craig Chaquico's Acoustic Highway, David Arkenstone's Sketches from an American Journey and Eric Tingstad's Southwest and Mississippi. That's already quite a pedigree and there's a lot more going on here than just those comparisons. That this slice of musical Americana would come from a native German is yet another "marvel" on this marvelous release”.
