CD Paris 1919 [John Cale]
Q (p.124) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A]rtful and smooth California rock, which particularly in its ballads...exudes a woozy warmth."Q (1/94, p.108) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...its melancholic melodies and enigmatic, wintry lyrics make this undoubtedly his best work...."Uncut (11/03, p.106) - "The easiest point of entry into Cale's world, and the first great album of Cale's post-Velvets career..."The Wire (6/00, pp.36-7) - "...Excellent chamber pop....Cale's 1st masterpiece, it is one of the very few records anywhere to integrate orchestra and rock instruments so fully that you can't see the join..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.120) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he piano-and-vocal mix of the title track is sure to please anyone seduced by the stripped-down Cale of 1992's live FRAGMENTS IF A RAINY SEASON."
CD In the World of Him
The Wire (p.66) - "[T]he most immediately interesting song is 'Little Tommy Tucker', recited in an eerie, breathless vocal over a string driven folky drone recalling John Cale in the blackest of moods."Mojo (Publisher) (p.114) - 4 stars out of 5 - "These are songs written by men, and sung from their perspective, a litany of anxieties brilliantly served by a torchy, folk-tronic brand of western in which the woozily seductive Timms sounds both callous and tender in turn....A covers album supreme."
CD Compounds PLUS Elements: An Introduction to All Saints Records
CD The Long Lost
Q (Magazine) (p.107) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is like an updated version of Astrud Gilberto's easy-listening bossa nova, all soft Latin shuffles and dreamy vocals, Laura harmonizing elegantly over Alfred's off-centre drumbreaks..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.107) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[R]ooted in bossa nova beauty....Alfred's occasional, doleful vocal is John Cale to Laura's Nico: with strings looped into an hypnotic lull, 'Siren Song' updates Nico's CHELSEA GIRL sound."Clash (magazine) (p.111) - "Never have songs surrounding the subject of love and romance been so utterly thrilling and delightful as this....'Sibilance' is simply sublime, but yet so is the rest of this enchanting journey of unimaginable brilliance."
CD The Marble Index [Nico]
Uncut (p.92) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "THE MARBLE INDEX isn't a record you listen to. It's a hole you fall into....One of that rare breed of recordings which, the better part of four decades later, still has no adequate peer, existing in a genre all of its own."The Wire (6/00, pp.35-6) - "...[A] glacial classic....shimmering song-mirages which disappear with the harmonium's dying notes..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Freed from pop conventions, Nico wrote stark, symbolist lyrics that appear to have issued from her subconscious..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.79) - "Viola flourishes and drones courtesy of fellow VU exile John Cale further dramatise the record's innate melancholy, sublime elegance and haunted howl."

DVD Dreamer [DVD] [Full Frame]
"[I]t does manage some moments of easy charm and boasts some decent performances. Some of the best scenes are built around the credible exchanges between Fanning and Kurt Russell as the girl's father." Sight and Sound "Fanning and Russell make this watchable family entertainment..."USA Today
