Dylan Marshall from The AU Review said "William Crighton is all guns blazing as he takes the listener into his mind and experiences with Water and Dust; a vast and sprawling release that is as equally pulsating and enticing as it is calmed and familiar." Dylan said the album "cements him as one of Australia's finest artists".[4]

Josh Leeson from The Newcastle Herald said "Crighton is telling the bush's own story. Its rage. Its memories. Its myths. Its beauty … Water and Dust is his finest work."[5]

Gareth Bryant from Scenestr said "There's a raw intensity to William Crighton's newest studio album Water and Dust, the rage simmering just below the surface fuelling a diverse soundscape that navigates brooding blues, rollicking folk-rock, impassioned post-punk and starkly beautiful indie rock, alt. country." Bryant also said "Water and Dust is an album that will gift new layers with repeat listens, revealing more and more of William's soul, the artist's honest storytelling capturing the many facets of the Australian character that will resonate deeply."[6]
