Spin (6/00, p.155) - "...Bob Brozman plays a poor man's Ry Cooder with good humor and great taste, weaving in slide-guitar lines while [Takahashi] sings beatifically about eating tofu, getting diarrhea, and asking his mom to do his hair....kinda like an Okinawan Jonathan Richman..."The Wire (5/00, p.68) - "...A quirkily charming excursion, essential devotees of Santa Cruz baritone and Kona Hawaiian guitars."CMJ (4/24/00, p.32) - "...A lovely acoustic collaboration, which often draws upon Okinawan children's songs for inspiration."0.4780534

Q (3/00, p.111) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...retains all the energy and lyrical brilliance of their earlier work, only with a jagged more guitar-led sound. The songs here are witty...and even creepy....A band on form in a state of rich, droll unpleasant maturity."Alternative Press (5/00, p.112) - 3 out of 5 - "...Remarkably calm, rife with the same breezy, notably non-violent wise-ass humor. Gordon Gano fulfills his duties as jaded, malaise-ridden singer man...while his acoustic strums mesh easily with the skilled bob and bounce of the rhythm section..."CMJ (2/7/00, p.23) - "...[their] most consistent set of new material since 1989's 3....a big blister of folkcore brilliance that even the sun couldn't eclipse."Mojo (Publisher) (3/00, p.110) - "...Aside from a few cool countrified numbers this kicks along with the scratchy, punkish intent of old, Gordon Gano's vocal a blend of Jonathan Richman and a stifled sheep....a little complexity seems to be gurgling back."0.3585401

Entertainment Weekly (7/11/97, p.68) - "...A stellar guest list...pays respect to the songs and spirit of the man. Ptacek greases up the tracks with his eloquent bottleneck guitar, a unique sound suggesting Delta music gone to the hinterlands and back." - Rating: A-Musician (10/97, p.90) - "...[Ptacek is] a canny writer of brooding, late-night tunes that ponder human fallibility with wry bemusement....THE INNER FLAME offers tantalizing glimpses of Rainer Ptacek..."0.2555025

Entertainment Weekly (9/20/96, p.83) - "...Richman returns to the big leagues...with this typically friendly collection. SURRENDER offers a decent representation of Richman's considerable charms but largely lacks the effervescence of his best work..." - Rating: BQ (11/96, p.132) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...a strong return to form for the adenoidal one, the usual breezy pop melodies propped up by a fruitily belligerent horn section and a succession of Gallic-flavoured accordion flourishes..."38.38608
