Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins/Bella Union) expressed his praise towards 'Old Joe'
"With a cool motorik rhythm and atmospheric lead vocals floating above fuzzy-folk guitars and vintage sounding synths, the lyric video for 'Old Joe' is a delight. It begins with an antique tap dripping slowly in time with the beats, and then by using an imaginative array of found-footage that highlights the song’s narrative, it takes us on a journey akin to scanning old magazines and dusty super 8 films. It’s like being on a train ride through time as the song looks back wistfully at a life gone by, contemplating all that went before, the happy and the sad. It’s a poignant accompaniment to a particularly touching song from what already feels like Seadog’s most accomplished work to date."
