Go When The Morning Shineth is a "resplendent collection of music featuring the chiming, electromatic sound and occasional voice of Don Peris - longtime guitarist for the innocence mission. Don’s unique and unmistakable guitar tones dip and soar, shimmer with tremolo, and create strong melodies in a memorable collection of songs."

"Go When the Morning Shineth is a wistful, nostalgic recording of intimate guitar melodies and subtle backing." - John Diliberto / echos.org

"Gorgeously orchestrated soundscapes of guitar, bass, cello, keyboards, and minimal drums cast an utterly beguiling spell which lingers long after the last notes have faded." No Depression

"Hypnotic arrangements of guitars, drums, keyboards, and cello, most of which are played by Peris. The opener, "Day Trip," has a wonderful dreamy feel, with the reverbed guitar floating along like a reimagined '60s soundtrack. "Day Trip" is followed by "Jubilee," though the title is somewhat misleading. The music is lovely, but it's more melancholy than happy. The two vocal tracks, "North Atlantic Sand" and "Young as You Feel," fit nicely into Go When the Morning Shineth's overall design, topping off an enjoyable album with a sound all its own. - Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr / All Music Guide

"Utilizing the same sparkling guitar tones that made songs like "Bright as Yellow" and "Wonder of Birds" so indelible, Peris crafts songs that are by turns soothing and stirring." - Amelia Raitt, eMusic
