Editorial Reviews

Spin.com premiered "Cadillac Desert" from Impossible Truth, writing " "Cadillac Desert," the first glimpse of Tyler's upcoming Impossible Truth, due out March 19 on Merge, is a layered, textured six-plus-minute track that gleams with enough surface-level beauty to appeal to listeners who'd rather zone out than admire technical prowess audiences who just might reach for this when they're in the mood for the slide-guitar reveries of Beach House, the ambient singer-songwriter haze of Grouper, or the slow-motion fireworks of Galaxie 500."

I am a guitarist (nothing like this) and appreciate those that are really great. William Tyler is great at playing and great at creating melodies and "pieces" of music. Just happened to see a facebook post about him. had a listen and immediately purchased this album and love it. If you like acoustic guitar and appreciate a great musician, then this is for you.

I sort of stumbled upon this record by accident but what oh, what a happy accident it was. This is a collection of multi layered guitar pieces that just sweep you away. Some have a bit of dissonance in them as the melody and song structure start to take hold. It's really amazing to watch each song unfold. If you're even the slightest fan of instrumental acoustic guitar, you really need to check this out.

Stunningly beautiful, hypnotic drone-flow finger-picking guitar rolls. Fluid, pastoral, mesmerizingly serene Americana instrumentals. Gorgeously atmospheric slices of wavering desert heatwave mirage. References artists like Leo Kottke, Robbie Basho, Sandy Bull, John Fahey. Works well with a sunny afternoon nap.

I heard his music on NPR and it reminded me of early John Fahey and Michael Hedges. He is definitely right up there with those two greats when it comes to composition and subtle expression through his guitar. This is music you will want to really listen to, not just have in the background.

It's impossible to describe how a long-ish album of instrumental guitar can be so moving and catchy and unpretentious. Reminds me of that great Tom Verlaine solo guitar album, except not as minimalist. Beautiful, beautiful stuff.

This album features the beautiful, amazing guitar work of William Tyler and superb production to create a fantastic work of art in which to lose yourself. As with most great music, this is best listened to with headphones and all in one sitting to fully appreciate the subtleties and textures. I saw William Tyler at a small venue in Nashville, and it was fascinating to watch his talent live and to find out what a genuinely nice person he is.
