Rolling Stone (8/5/99, pp.66-7) - 3 1/2 stars (out of 5) - "...could conceivably become a cult item, even a major hit....the melodies steadily gain resonance as the arrangements flower out into a jazzlike responsiveness..."Entertainment Weekly (9/3/99, p.69) - "...[Me'Shell's] misery has resulted in a stunning set of tough and tender sob stories....Bitter never tasted so sweet." - Rating: AQ (11/99, pp.128-30) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...a more acoustic-based, pared-down sound....With its clipped, one-word songtitles and slightly sombre style, this is a very adult record with an oddly soothing effect..."Vibe (9/99, p.264) - "...An impressionistic, rhythmic musicalization of that extended lost weekend....original, provocative, and...brilliant....BITTER is Album of the Year."Mojo (Publisher) (10/99, p.124) - "...proves she can do the confessional, singer-songwriterly thing too. BITTER is a passage of rites from an unsatisfying relationship into a mere enriching one....admirers of anyone from Nina Samone to John Martyn could be converted rapturously."0.2594216

Rolling Stone (p.70) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "With its skewed pop melodies, home-brewed sonic trickery and blazing fingerpicking, UNDER THE SKIN is a mesmerizing return to the side of Buckingham that birthed the proto-indie-pop strangeness of 1979's TUSK."Rolling Stone (p.108) - Ranked #42 in Rolling Stone's "The Top 50 Albums Of 2006" -- "[T]he eccentricity of SKIN suits Buckingham's reflections on his past life and current blessings."Entertainment Weekly (p.70) - "His fingerpicking is impossibly frantic in its nervous virtuosity, and each near-whisper is miked to sound like a scream. It's the spartan-yet-gonzo sound of a guy remembering he can go his own way." -- Grade: B+No Depression (p.100) - "His relentless fingerpicking is powerful on 'Not Too Late' and 'Shut Us Down'; his vocal overdubbing is inspired on 'Show You How' and 'Cast Away Dreams'."(p.133) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "A proper solo affair featuring Buckingham's breathy vocals, acoustic guitar and little else, UNDER THE SKIN knits accessible Buckingham together with his more daring side."Mojo (Publisher) (p.118) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "It is in essence a modern folk record, its minimalist beauty reminiscent of Nick Drake or John Martyn..."0.2161847

Q (p.110) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[H]is last truly great album....There's plenty of bitterness and regret, but unusually for a break-up album by a man, little self-pity and, on 'Hurt In Your Heart', a touching plea for friendship."Uncut (p.78) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[The songs] capture Martyn at his aching, bittersweet best, enhanced by John Gribbin's elliptical, jazzy basslines."Mojo (Publisher) (p.119) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n album of fathomless depth and nuance..."Mojo (Publisher) (4/04, p.142) - "[A] richly textured record on which woozy fretless bass and melting Fender Rhodes act like a salve....[A] classy - and refreshingly magnanimous - break-up record."0.2192353
