Gary Levitt CD discography "These tunes have more hooks than a tackle box." - Daily Freeman
"Pop with its edgily tense cortege of suspense straining strings." - Losing Today
"There's a little Bowie in there, and some Elliott Smith, but who cares about comparisons? Setting Sun writes and plays great songs." - New Times
"The writing would have made it stand out either way." - Pittsburgh Post-Gazzette
"It kind of made me feel like I was 15 again and listening to a new Sub Pop band." - Impact Press
"Spacey, thoughtful, and -- dare I say it -- pretty." -Space City Rock
"Setting Sun is good, and good for you." - News Observer (NC)
"Levitt wails with toned-down tinges of Kurt Cobain's emptiness and Elliot Smith's pain." - West Coast Performer
"It's urgent in a kind of methodical and knowing way." -Tasty Fanzine (UK)
"An intimate lyrical style but expansive music, embracing driving beats, soothing instrumental interludes and aggressive rhythms." - Eugene Weekly
"Like a never-ending treasure hunt. Each song evolves to some completely different end without losing its original idea." - Boise Weekly
"With his voice a biting whisper and guitar work that's quietly emphatic and shrewd as it picks its way around the fretboard, Setting Sun's Gary Levitt has more than a little Elliott Smith in him. We're talking old Elliott Smith here, i.e., the sad, intimate and cloudy days of Roman Candle." - Willamette Weekly (Portland)
"Maybe he's just an independent thinker who's onto something." - Las Cruces Pulse
