"Still Dreamin’ Wild: The Lost Recordings 1979-81 presents that secondary stage of reissue culture, culling demos in the years after the younger Emerson graduated high school and began traveling to Los Angeles in the hopes of realizing his teenage dreams. Older brother Joe was already turning his attentions to the family farm, his presence only heard on two of the album’s twelve tracks. Donnie’s polymath musical skills are on full display, from drums to poly-Moog synth, and his ability to mimic the more popular hits on the radio of the day remains uncanny. While Dreamin’ Wild seemed to float just out of its time, Still Dreamin’ for the most part embraces the tropes of early '80s pop radio. Had “Overture” lasted beyond a half-minute, it might have been a lost Panda Bear track, but it instead leads into the clean guitars and drums of “Don’t Fight.” The uptempo “Big Money”, featuring brother Joe’s walloping drums, is an album highlight, even if it only lasts two minutes." - Pitchfork
