    Though his first indie LP was subsequently reissued on Epic, this is Howie Day's first full-length album for a major label. If it's a bit less quirky than his previous MADRIGALS EP, it's also more confident-sounding and not quite as precious. Not that Day has abandoned his gentle, Coldplay-meets-Jeff Buckley folk-rock sound. It's simply that STOP ALL THE WORLD NOW, produced by Killing Joke bassist Youth, evens out Day's style a bit. The soaring, angelic falsetto is frequently accompanied by ascending dynamics and some forthright electric guitar backing. No one's going to mistake songs like the vibraphone-laden lazy-Sunday ballad "I'll Take You On" (from whose lyrics this album's title is drawn) for the Strokes or anything, but fans of the poppier side of Britpop might just take a fancy to this emotive singer-songwriter's modestly rocking mood music.

    CMJ (10/20/03, p.8) - "...His brand of radio-friendly pop should keep him well paid and trailed by adoring fans for a long time....Jeff Buckley fans will find a lot to enjoy here..."
