Alternative Press (7/00, p.94) - 3 out of 5 - "...Bizarre....gradually emerging as an almost airtight, emotionally barricaded sonic universe....This is not hillbilly music; rather, it is music intended to evoke 'hillbilly culture' to those who have never left a major city..."The Wire (5/00, p.69) - "...His first solo guitar album....Frisell tinkers with [Hank] William's 'I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry' and the Gershwin's 'My Man's Gone Now' from PORGY AND BESS, 2 eternal songs which he expertly picks away at like a hungry buzzard until only the bare bones remain."CMJ (3/27/00, p.23) - "...A milestone in the career of a true innovator - enchanting as anything he has done and a clear window into his muse."Down Beat (8/00, p.27) - Ranked #3 Jazz Album in Downbeat "Critics Poll 2000".Down Beat (6/00, pp.69-70) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...So immaculately layered and natural sounding that you can't imagine any other guitarist duplicating it....painting Frisell as the contented, beauty-worshipping man he is."JazzTimes (8/00, pp.91-2) - "...[He] is like a painter dealing with guitaristic layers....Spare as the setting is, [he] invests a lively world feeling behind economic material....[It] is the polar opposite of background music....he's the friendly guitar anti-hero of our time."No Depression (3-4/00, p.113) - "...a lyrical Utopia where the one-of-a-kind guitarist can indulge his love of glowing heartland melodies in splendid isolation....The bright, vibrant sound...from his layered picking and strumming lights up the room..."64.29677

Entertainment Weekly (5/30/97, p.73) - "...one of the freshest variations on mostly unplugged C&W around. Frisell lays down his sweet and languid sound, getting help form such folks as Dobro king Jerry Douglas and vocalist Robin Holcolm. It's lazy, smart, twilight-on-the-back-porch music." - Rating: B+Down Beat (8/97, pp.48-49) - 4 1/2 stars (out of 5) - "...it's hard to believe Frisell's only exposure might have been from watching Minnie Pearl and the Grand Ol' Opry on TV....what is most striking about Frisell...is how...he makes you forget where you are, losing you in a swirl of creativity that has little or nothing to do with genres or...settings..."JazzTimes (9/97, p.73) - "...Frisell's sweet 'n' slightly twisted songwriting flair is on the money here....Frisell's guitaristic approach, often sounding like a cross between Chet Atkins and a Martian pedal steel, player shows respect for tradition by tugging it in new directions."Option (9-10/97, p.95) - "...magically sidesteps the faceless tedium that dooms so many instrumental albums. There are several reasons for that: Frisell's nimble, confident finger-picking; a group of stellar Music City pickers who support Frisell without getting flashy or pretentious; and a unifying musical voice..."Musician (8/97, p.91) - "...an evocation of folk traditions that have been gathering steam under the heading of Americana....retro visions of drive-in movies, endless highways, and lost innocence....among the earthiest and [most] deeply felt of Frisell's many fine recordings..."64.29677

Q (11/99, p.135) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...On [PLAY] Stern calls in [John] Scofield and also Bill Frisell for several tracks.

Rolling Stone (9/30/99, p.87) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...[revives] the master's dynamic orchestrations and elegant drifts and still [moves] forward.
