"[A] mesmerizing look at the mythic quality and anarchic spirit of the irreverent and rabble-rousing journalist..."USA Today "GONZO, directed by Alex Gibney, is filled to the top with admiring celebrities -- including Wolfe, singer Jimmy Buffett, and politicians such as former president Jimmy Carter and presidential candidate George McGovern -- offering encomiums to Thompson's talent."Los Angeles Times "GONZO is a fascinating history lesson and a bit of a cautionary tale -- about the corrosive effects of rampant drug use, yes, but more about how fame can turn into the scourge of talent."New York Times "This documentary by Alex Gibney taps the full fascination of its subject....Gibney devotes exhaustive sections to Thompson's journalistic landmarks, as well as to his 1969 candidacy mayor of Aspen..." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly 4 stars out of 5 -- "Gibney craftily interweaves archive footage, a rocking soundtrack, face-to-faces with an amazing range of interviewees and Thompson's audio tapes, so that the subject is also the narrator."Empire16.81277

Rolling Stone (p.80) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Louvin turns out highly likable collabos with people such as Elvis Costello, Jeff Tweedy and Will Oldham. Well-penned and dustily tuneful."Entertainment Weekly (p.98) - "[Featuring] lovely, utterly unpretentious readings of these dozen bluegrass standards, blues, and selections from his own songbook." -- Grade: B+Uncut (p.86) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]mong the sturdy Louvins/Carter Family/Bill Monroe chestnuts, 'Ira', a tearful elegy to his brother's legacy stands out."Magnet (p.103) - "[A]t 79 years of age and with his voice taking on a handsome, lacquered husk not unlike that of Dr. Ralph Stanley, Louvin remains the focal point."Dirty Linen (p.82) - "Louvin sounds great and seems to be having a ball running through a set of Louvin Brothers tunes and classics by the likes of A.P. Carter, Jimmie Rodgers, and the Delmore Brothers."No Depression (p.111) - "The project positions Louvin as a crucial link between country's foundations and future....It's hard for a murder ballad to get an darker than the matter-of-fact 'Knoxville Girl', or for heartbreak to sound more desolately abject than on 'Must You Throw Dirt On My Face'."Mojo (Publisher) (p.104) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here is subtle beauty here and cuts such as the tender biographical tribute 'Ira'...and 'Grave On The Green Hillside' are a real delight."0.1290151

Paste (magazine) - "[T]he album's best songs, like the bewitching would-be lullaby 'The Night Last Night,' demand repeat listens."Clash (magazine) - "'Lose It' featuring Ghostface Killah is a genuinely great track..."Record Collector (magazine) (p.95) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "While this arguably trades on the glowing half-life of electroclash, it's not just an '80s vat of synths and smugness....There's no desperation here, just the sound of a fortunate man having a huge amount of fun."0.1096931
