Q (8/96, p.122) - 3 Stars - Good - "Lambchop's large line-up, minimal country-tinged drawl and general earthiness has captured some attention recently....the end result is surprisingly powerful with Kurt Wagner's vocal developing a world-weary storytelling edge."Uncut (p.114) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] peculiar combination of the smoothly contemporary and the creakily archaic."Option (9-10/96, p.119) - "...[the] tunes are heartbreakers every one, but...this uninterrupted bout of melancholy makes for a satisfying and uplifting listen....songs drift lazily along in a haze of understated guitars, off-key horns and beats that sound like they were recorded in a basement two houses down..."Melody Maker (8/6/86, p.46) - "...They just seep through the walls and gently insinuate themselves into your life, the haziest mass of steel guitar curlicues and muffled percussion hovering by the windows, Kurt Wagner singing like NASHVILLE SKYLINE-era Dylan or Vic Chesnutt.
