All Music review (4,5/5): It’s that good a record, flawlessly written and performed, and produced with uncommon skill and grace – it’s likely one of the best singer/songwriter records of 2012, and most any year that came before. (25.09.12)

NME (New Musical Express): Jacob Graham (The Drums) shares his favorite new musical discoveries. Jacob says: “I’ve just discovered Dylan Mondegreen, a Norwegian songwriter who hasn’t released anything since 2009’s ‘The World Spins On’. He writes sad, sweet songs – dare I make a Blueboy comparison? Perhaps! There are equal measures of Jens Lekman, Acid House Kings and Sufjan Stevens in there, too”, and he places Wishing Well first in his Top 5 list. (25.02.12)

P3 Pop, Sveriges Radio P3: “Den beste svenske indiepopen akkurat nå, den kan lages i Norge – av en fyr som heter Børge Sildnes, men som kaller seg for Dylan Mondegreen når han lager musikk. Allerede i vår slapp han singelen Wishing Well, som ble spilt masse i norsk P3 – og også hjemme hos meg i løpet av sommeren. Og nå kommer Dylan Mondegreens første album, som er fullt av både den her sorten velsnekret  Labrador-pop, samt mer atmosfæriske saker. While I Walk You Home heter skiva. Låta du hørte her i P3 Pop het Girl In Grass og det var altså Dylan Mondegreen som var artisten.” – Programleder Sara Martinsson (10.09.07)
