His trademark twinkling guitar is missing, but the voice is as gorgeous as ever--occasionally a little deeper than of old, but still a tool as expressive, humane and downright likable as any that's graced pop..."Vibe (11/96, p.136) - "...NEW WORLD ORDER is truly heaven sent....The effect, reminiscent of old-school Mayfield without descending into retro nostalgia, finely suits the blend of bittersweet love songs and social commentary..."Village Voice (2/25/97) - Ranked #31 in the Village Voice's 1996 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.Mojo (Publisher) (3/00, p.121) - "...almost unbearably poignant....The new songs are unequivocal messages of hope and he revisits earlier material like 'We The People Who Are Darker Than Blue'.
