"Appleton’s performance bled with emotion, vacillating between longing and rage - in moments even ominous in tone, with sharp, harsh strumming reminiscent of an Irish murder ballad. In moments, Appleton sunk into his guitar and rocked back and forth so violently he seemed set to launch off the stage - his stage energy best described as a beautiful exorcism." THE MUSIC (AU)
