"Evans makes a hell of an MVP."Rolling Stone "As the titular comic book character, Chris Evans has an appealing, earnest quality....Evans provides just the right human anchor to the flash and dazzle of director Joe Johnston's production."USA Today 3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's a terrific movie....[T]he World War II-era drama returns the form to its classic roots..."Washington Post 3 stars out of 4 -- "[H]ere is a real movie....It has the texture and takes the care to be a full-blown film."Chicago Sun-Times "Evans has gone the Marvel route before....[T]his part brings out an appealing earnestness and humility in the actor that is certainly not business as usual in the comic book superhero genre."Los Angeles Times "[T]he film reaches back to the seed of all superhero fantasy: the myth of the 98-pound weakling transfigured....Evans is an appealing actor..." -- Grade: BEntertainment Weekly 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Johnston] manages to pull out the stops for the finale: an explosive confrontation above the clouds that then quiets down for a touching farewell."Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "Joe Johnston shrink-wraps Americana in the super-powered physique of star Chris Evans and serviceably approximates a brisk, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK-esque sense of adventure..."Box Office "Director Joe Johnston went the retro route in the underrated THE ROCKETEER, and again catches the 1940s tone well: the film finds an acceptable rationale for the Captain American persona..."Sight and Sound0.6815492

Spin (11/94, p.96) - Highly Recommended - "...This is gorgeous, throat lump-inducing music....McCarty fleshes out Johnston's home-recorded sketches into an eclectic assortment of torch ballads, guitar rockers, and beer-hall sing-alongs, and beguiling art pop..."Entertainment Weekly (11/25/94, p.77) - "...Singer Kathy McCarty, formerly of Glass Eye, pays tribute to fellow Austin, Texas musician Daniel Johnston....unearthing veins of compassion and sadness not heard on the originals..." - Rating: A-Alternative Press (2/95, p.64) - "...This isn't a tribute album, more an homage to one highly individual talent from another....[Kathy McCarty's] biggest achievement is to make these songs accessible while retaining the charm of their quirkiness..."Option (5-6/95, p.116) - "...McCarty's a capable singer, and her voice is the glue that holds the disparate styles together....McCarty manages to separate Johnston's songs from his eccentric persona..."Melody Maker (8/12/95, p.35) - "...Other people have tried covering Daniel's songs before...mostly without much joy. Maybe they've all been in too much awe. Kathy treats Daniel's songs with due reverence, love and humour--and one helluva kick in her voice..."Village Voice (2/28/95) - Ranked #36 in the Village Voice's 1994 Pazz & Jop Critics Poll.NME (Magazine) (8/19/95, p.51) - 8 (out of 10) - "...brilliant...Songs that were once skeletal, lo-fidelity, bedroom-with-tape-recorder affairs become full blooded and experimental....if these songs were Kathy's she'd be on the same magazine covers as Liz Phair..."30.57674

Entertainment Weekly (p.69) - "[O]ld-time country music, early blues, and gospel....The recordings -- of varying brilliance -- are grail-like rarities."Living Blues (p.76) - "House was the greatest of all the 'deep' Delta singers, and this was his greatest recording session. The guitar work is crisp, with his usual unerring rhythmic control, and his voice is magnificent."No Depression (p.100) - "There are fetching country blues tracks.....It's all put together with enthusiasm and tongue-in-cheek ribbing of the collecting bug."Mojo (Publisher) (p.110) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] glittering parade of mountain stringbands and sanctified preachers, fiddle and harmonica tunes, banjo songs and guitar blues..."0.09531143
