"Distance has always figured strongly in Ox's music.  This is a place where people are always on the move, forever climbing into that beat-up old car and making a go of it.  The band dips into dark space- somewhere in the sad piano of the debut's "Stolen Car"- but which here is given room on the trippy, hypnotic groan of "Unknown Legend."  Ox sketches a scene of a long road through the night and an eight-track soundtrack of REO Speedwagon- hope out of reach but not out of mind in a world where the little things- the minute details- matter.  And so, "Burnout" finds Ox on the move, ducking and weaving but never giving up, always fighting through the night and heading for the promise of a new dawn somewhere just over the rise.  Another masterful piece of work."
