Down Beat (1/96, p.49) - 4.5 Stars - Very Good/Excellent - "...[Williams] uses his big and tough voice to sing...with passion, conviction, forbearance. His homemade guitar also captures his deep feeling....exemplifies the Delta tradition, reflecting a proud man's attempts to deal with adversity....The sound reproduction...is excellent..."Dirty Linen (4-5/96, p.51) - "...With his gruff, blustery voice, Williams brings to mind the foreboding menace of acoustic John Lee Hooker..."Living Blues (3-4/96, p.92) - "...For those discovering the joys of acoustic Delta blues for the first time, MISSISSIPPI'S BIG JOE WILLIAMS AND HIS NINE-STRING GUITAR offers the chance to be initiated into some of the music's deepest and most passionate secrets, by one of the all-time masters."0.2396138

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..."0.2053832

Rolling Stone (3/23/95, p.124) - 3.5 Stars - Very Good - "...At times, everything in Morphine sounds like it's playing the rhythm--the intertwining sax and bass line, the lyrics' syllabic pop....For all their sultriness, Morphine do rock out, and like the best jazz, they swing at any tempo..."Entertainment Weekly (3/17/95, p.88) - "...it's tough to keep any sound from seeming stale, especially one as eccentric and seemingly limited as Morphine's bass, drums, and baritone sax lineup. YES generally succeeds, adding energy to the band's muscular `low rock'..." - Rating: B+Q (2/96, p.65) - Included in Q's 50 Best Albums of 1995.Q (5/95, p.109) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Morphine still pull off the difficult trick of sounding fresh while making you feel you've heard it all before."Alternative Press (5/95, pp.71-72) - "...Morphine have turned their aesthetic slightly askew, with some songs as heady as the concoction of a Lucky Strike snubbed into a battered ashtray smoldering into the mist of a cheap perfume. Turn up the collar on your coat and stagger away, smiling..."Melody Maker (4/22/95, p.33) - "...Morphine's after-hours world of hustlers, losers, drug addicts and wronged lovers [has a] dramatic momentum that doesn't let up until the last tale has come to its inevitably sorry end....the absence of guitar...bring[s] some authenticity to the story, the lo-fi, jazz feel of the sax blending in brilliantly with the literary ghosts evoked by the bass..."Musician (6/95, pp.73-74) - "...amplifies their trenchcoat take on rock 'n' roll, a take that has chiseled a place for itself even though it's threaded with anachronisms and prone to contradiction....bridges the emotional gap between John Lee Hooker's moaning stealth and Last Exit's frenzied abstraction..."0.1711527
