  • Critic Reviews
    Q (12/95, p.134) - 3 Stars - Good - "...a quietly gripping snapshot of low lifes, love lives and shadowy displaced characters, shot through with vivid blasts of shocking lyrical imagery and smoothly unsettling Carroll vocals..."
    Alternative Press (1/96, pp.73-74) - "...[TRUE CRIME MOTEL] blends a voice which is truly one of rock's most seductive deadly weapons with a clutch of songs which wouldn't seem out of place on a Gram Parsons album... if Elvis Costello arranged it, and Debbie Harry washed up the dishes..."
    Option (3-4/96, p.96) - "The '50s had Peggy Lee and the `60s had Dusty Springfield; Cath Carrol is a chanteuse for the `90s..."
    NME (Magazine) (9/9/95, p.50) - 7 (out of 10) - "...rooted in the ethics of days when `indie' did not mean a generic style of music or an `attitude', but a specific stance and a riposte to capitalism....this is resolutely `adult' music, with an experienced band constructing sympathetic backdrops for...late-night tales..."
