The album has received accolades from reviewers worldwide.
"Carolyn Berk's songs are full of breathless melancholy and a sinking, infinite sadness. In them you hear hints of the circus-fuineral magic-realist run-on folk song of Neutral Milk Hotel, the dreamy twilight grandeur of Mazzy Star, Bright Eyes' last-gasp soliloquies, and the ghost-haunted majesty of Magnetic Fields' loneliest highways. But I'll be damned if Berk isn't a more entrancing spell-caster than any of them." - The Boston Phoenix
"Dark Light is a high-reaching record, its best songs finding heartfelt middleground between the unadorned sincerity of Berk's voice and a synth-driven backdrop courtesy of collaborator Kerby Ferris. Rounding out the trio is Emily Kingan on drums, formerly of Portland queercore band the Haggard." - Portland Mercury
