Rolling Stone (11/28/96, pp.132-134) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...Gone are the acoustic guitars that dominated the last two albums; the music is now beefed up by the churning, dual-guitar electricity of [Evan] Dando and Bill Gibson....Perhaps the most startling development...is the degree to which Dando is prepared to risk being serious..."Spin (11/96, p.120) - 8 (out of 10) - "...his deftest yet, jumping from pastel-toned jangle to messy rawk noise. The resulting music lifts Dando into the category of first-rate rock'n'roll weirdo, a less bonkers Syd Barrett for the generation that buys its psychedelics at Urban Outfitters..."Entertainment Weekly (10/18/96, p.82) - "...prove[s] the Lemonheads can still squeeze deliciously bittersweet pop out of their souls." - Rating: B+Q (11/96, p.126) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...an awkward but magnetically honest instance of mental spring-cleaning, as Black Sabbath as it is Burrito Brothers. One hopes he's feeling better now."Melody Maker (9/21/96, p.48) - Recommended - "...Sometimes soulful, sometimes...glib. Sometimes plain irritating. And sometimes pure genius....basically, COME ON FEEL THE LEMONHEADS part two--and recommendations don't come much higher than that. It's just as sad, lonely, confused, tormented. It's just as relentlessly inward-looking..."NME (Magazine) (12/21-28/96, pp.66-67) - Ranked #23 in NME's 1996 critic's poll.NME (Magazine) (9/28/96, p.54) - 8 (out of 10) - "For one so royally f---ed up, Evan Dando's a very tidy craftsman....caressing the sharp, rhythmic lines and upward curves of melodic loveliness that fatten CAR BUTTON CLOTH, it's easy to forget Dando's recent history..."0.4233162

Spin (5/92, p.16) - "...a triumphant return with a fifth heaping hamper of catchy, crafty guitar-pop ditties via [Dando's] wonderful Lemonheads..."Q (12/99, p.74) - Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."Q (1/93) - p.72) - Included in Q's list of the 50 Best Albums Of 1992.Uncut (p.106) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[L]istening to IT'S A SHAME ABOUT RAY now, what's most striking is an emotional frailty at the heart of these swift and memorable little songs..."Magnet (p.100) - "RAY still sounds remarkably fresh, retaining its bouncy, subdued edge with a sense of humor the Lemonheads' peers painfully lacked."Reflex (11/10/92, p.72) - "...catchy...it would be a shame not to buy RAY..." Option (Nov.-Dec./92, p.124) - "...altogether more assured...thanks to some unabashedly great songs like the title tune, this should prove wildly popular..."Q (Magazine) (p.148) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[C]areworn guitar pop, equally grounded in punk and Gram Parsons, a fusion that found its near-perfect embodiment on 1992's IT'S A SHAME ABOUT RAY."Mojo (Publisher) (p.120) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he whole thing was washed in a sweet, dopey, lazy sunniness that gave warmth to everything it touched..."Paste (magazine) (p.73) - "Its sugary, lilting melodies and the boy/girl harmonies of frontman Evan Dando and then-bassist Juliana Hatfield were unexpected..."Pitchfork (Website) - "Almost 16 years after its initial release, Dando's slacker pop sounds almost Zen. Those short songs now seem concise and even disciplined. What was once mopey now plays as something much more complex and contradictory: exuberant pop melancholy."Record Collector (magazine) (p.96) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is an interesting juncture indeed, charming in its sunny naivety."0.2394638
