Spin (12/94, p.109) - Highly Recommended - "...tweak the already shaky margins of alt-Opryland....a Gram Parsons anagram: earnest but definitely off-kilter...uneasy story-songs...in a voice so plaintive, you can hear his lips brush the microphone....a greasy slab of meat in sheep's clothing..."Uncut (p.116) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Right from the opening lines...Lambchop appeared to be pursuing an agenda way off the radar of rock music."Alternative Press (2/95, p.65) - "...This record is about life at its basics, and the art of watching the world from your front porch....Lambchop's billowing taste of slow weather represents our best small-town Tom Waits..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.121) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "While strings, brass and woodwind smoke around him, disturbing images lift out of the sound like dirt in a washing powder commercial."NME (Magazine) (12/23-30/95, pp.22-23) - Ranked #44 in NME's `Top 50 Albums Of The Year' for 1995 - "The American Tindersticks, more or less.

Uncut (p.114) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t offers a fascinating portrait of the band's progress from rough 'n' ready amateurs to capable players. More interestingly, it also bears out Wagner's contention that they were always more influenced by indie and punk than anything else..."Magnet (p.90) - "Lambchop was consciously stripping down its lush sound....[The songs] are a treat, even for completists familiar with their skeletal versions."Mojo (Publisher) (p.121) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[S]urprisingly good value, showing, as marginalia often can, the odd tendrils that create a band's roots."0.272883

Rolling Stone (3/2/00, p.99) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...They're a little bit o' twang with a pinch of soul, a mini-orchestra that plays with the attitude of Salvation Army buskers and the chops of an indie-rock band....both profound and affectingly universal..."Spin (5/00, p.158) - 9 out of 10 - "...Music that gently rattles the heavens....simple homilies...with so much beauty that they don't suggest a forgotten, mythical America so much as an overlooked workaday one..."Q (1/01, p.93) - Included in Q's "50 Best Albums of 2000".Q (3/00, p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...accessible, clever and full of a rare integrity."Uncut (p.104) - "All serious stuff, but the genius of Lambchop -- perfected here -- is the way the melodies rub balm into the pain."Uncut (3/00, pp.73-4) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...NIXON is unequivocally the best example so far of what it is that they do that makes them so unique....One of the first great records of the new millennium..."Alternative Press (5/00, p.93) - 3 out of 5 - "...Fascinating....drawing on the everyday minutiae that informed their previous LP's..."Magnet (4-5/00, p.80) - "...NIXON is eccentric, exuberant and, ultimately, essential..."CMJ (2/14/00, p.18) - "...booms with disco-tinged violin suites and a few genuinely funkified R&B numbers alongside understated and sinisterly clever tunes that are Wagner's trademark....interesting and playful..."Melody Maker (2/8/00, p.47) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...consolidates mainman Kurt Wagner's position as one of the most innovative artists around..."No Depression (3-4/00, p.112) - "...NIXON is wired up with primemoving, vintage Gibson guitar rendering Kurt Wagner's own version of country music....Lambchop try to constrain their smiles and just wink, but instrumentally they're as serious as thirteen heart attacks..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.112) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] restless masterpiece, 'The Old Gold Shoe' and 'Grumpus' tracing Wagner's strangely off-beat diurnal rhythms..."Mojo (Publisher) (2/00, p.91) - "...[Kurt Wagner's] most romantic songs to date and also some of his bleakest....It's [Lambchop's] most fully realised record, the most perfect blend of their alt country roots and their obsession with soul..."NME (Magazine) (12/30/00, p.78) - Ranked #13 in NME's "Top 50 Albums Of The Year".NME (Magazine) (2/5/00, p.28) - 9 out of 10 - "...their greatest album....an astonishing work....an alt-country PET SOUNDS....a swooning wonder, covered in glory."Pitchfork (Website) - "NIXONis still an improbable album.

Rolling Stone (p.96) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "MURDER BALLADS features a scalded steam-train engineer, a lovelorn suicide and other doomed souls, sketched by Louvin's gentle warble and a stately string band."Billboard (p.45) - "Louvin's once-crystalline voice does wear his 81 years, but it also carries deeper understanding of the heartache central to the disaster songs he first recorded decades ago..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.109) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Like Johnny Cash, the surviving half of the legendary Louvin Brothers has no problem singing about God and sin with equal gusto.

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. You can't tire of such quiet persuasion..."NME (Magazine) (7/6/96, p.37) - 8 (out of 10) - "...[HANK] retains all the components which made...such a brilliant record: the droning steel guitars, the barely audible whisper of Kurt Wagner and the sedately maudlin songs which seemingly take an eternity to unfold..."0.2046623
