Uncut (p.88) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "At the center, in splendid isolation from the surrounding cast of characters, are Browne's boyishly earnest voice and its constant shadow throughout the decade: the keening lap-steel and doleful violin of David Lindley."Dirty Linen (p.63) - "Writing rock songs about life on the road has long been a cliche, but the topic was never treated with such verve and condor as it was on Jackson Browne's 1977 album RUNNING ON EMPTY..."11.2292

Rolling Stone (3/6/97, p.70) - 3.5 Stars (out of 5) - "...He has an infallible ear for melody, and the technical limitations of his voice imbue his singing with an engaging sincerity....he comes off more like the singer in a band than a singer/songwriter whose songs have been too meticulously arranged..."Spin (3/97, p.100) - 8 (out of 10) - "...on NEVER HOME, Johnston's matched gifts for the memorable tune, the telling phrase, and the painful situation all reassert themselves....Not every song is a keeper, but more than half are, and nothing goes by without waving hello..."Entertainment Weekly (2/21-2/28/97, p.125) - "...Johnston's fourth finds him more successful with character sketches than with personal songs about dysfunctional relationships....Original and off-beat." - Rating: B+Option (7-8/97, p.113) - "...There's nary a clink or quirk in the music to match the twists and turns of what's being said...Still, Johnston's songcraft alone puts his work well ahead of dozens of quirkier records..."6.868711

Rolling Stone (1/27/94, p.52) - 3 1/2 Stars - Good Plus - "....when the Whigs' dense, near-symphonic blast...coalesces with their brooding intensity, they tug at the heartstrings in ways not much late-period punk rock does..."Entertainment Weekly (10/1/93, p.56) - "...lyrically, the album's a downer, but the brooding intensity of these anthems-for-the-alienated is as addictive as cheap drugs..."Q (8/96, p.132) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...GENTLEMEN is the band's best album: Dulli's lyrics are sexy, Rick McCollum's guitar work is relatively free of indie cliche and the songs strike sparks off one another....it was Dulli letting down his...armour which showed the most heart..."Q (11/93, p.113) - 3 Stars - Good - "...GENTLEMEN augments [the Afghan Whigs'] reputation for making music of serrated sorrowfulness....at [the Afghan Whigs'] best, their's is a musical madness to be compared with the clattering, majestic melancholy of Buffalo Tom..."Alternative Press (5/01, p.104) - Included in AP's "10 Essential Breakup Albums" - "...In GENTLEMEN's universe, relationships crumble, than drag on too long, and the answer is often self-destruction..."Melody Maker (1/1/94, p.76) - Ranked #2 in Melody Maker's list of the `Albums Of The Year' for 1993 - "...Like the Stones at their best, stuff to get your fingers sticky in...."Musician (11/93, p.86) - "...GENTLEMEN is full of what makes the band interesting--odd, ambling guitars and Greg Dulli's skewed songwriting--but a warmer, more dynamic sound serves the record well...."Village Voice (3/1/94, p.5) - Ranked #17 in the Village Voice's 1993 Pazz & Jop Critics Poll.NME (Magazine) (10/9/93, p.39) - (9) - Excellent Plus - "...GENTLEMEN is one long guilt purge...[it] towers above all the others..."NME (Magazine) (12/25/93, p.66) - Ranked #20 in New Musical Express' list of `The Top 50 LPs Of 1993' - "...Grunge was officially proclaimed dead but Cincinatti's Afghan Whigs had been preparing the grave for the past two years...."6.851458

Spin (9/95, pp.112-113) - 6 - Reasonably Good - "...wallows in a deep, bass-driven earthy blues that's on a continuum with John Lee Hooker, dub reggae, and Miles Davis' early '70s electric period. Kyuss' preferred method of assault is a slow-motion blizzard of sound, like thrash slowed down to 16 rpm..."Q (8/95, p.124) - 3 Stars - Good - "...part grunge rumble, part Mick Ronson salvo circa Spiders Of Mars....John Garcia's vocals wail convincingly but it's Josh Homme's fluid guitar that strays into everything from glam to thrash, with a touch of melody lulling the impartial listener into a false sense of semi-comfort..."NME (Magazine) (7/15/95, p.46) - 8 (out of 10) "...the thinking mammoth's metal muthas....Kyuss' riffs are supremely obese, like the bowels of Black Sabbath after six vindaloos and no rice, and only Monster Magnet can really compare on that level..."6.841257
