"It’s hard to believe that one man accomplishes the quality, chemistry, technical proficiency, musical beauty, and emotion that ring resonantly in the nine song, 71-minute long piece of artistry that is Skeletons. [...] If you enjoy music that is complex yet emotional, experimental yet intelligible, and dark yet inspiring, you’ll definitely want to give Skeletons a spin – or ten."
- The Independent Voice

"Every second is worth a listen. [...] You probably don’t know of Austin Taft, but you need to."
- The Riff Rag

"Taft has an abundance of talent that is blatantly evident on this album. If this is an example of his unleashed skeletons, then let's hope he has plenty more to set free for future recordings!"
- Powerplay Magazine
