Q (8/95, p.145) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...remains the most significant album of the early '60s American white blues boom....The instrumental interplay between Koerner and Ray's acoustic guitars and Glover's harmonica is never less than engrossing and often exhilarating..."Down Beat (p.73) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "In concert segments and interviews, the three musicians reveal themselves to be free spirits hip to the zeitgeist of the time."Down Beat (1/96, p.49) - 4.5 Stars - Good/Very Good - "...[Koerner and Ray] are gifted acoustic guitarists, creating an imposing lattice of embroidered scales and bends, and they bring personality and emotional honesty to their singing. Tony `Little Son' Glover informs his vocal and harmonica playing with a rare intelligence....fresh and vibrant music..."Living Blues (5-6/99, p.103) - "...The depth of country blues knowledge, feeling, and expression displayed by these young white Northerners is startling, surpassing much of the work of today's acoustic revivalists..."Sing Out! (8-10/95, p.139) - "...[Koerner, Ray & Glover] are remarkable in the instrumental and vocal skills they brought to a traditional music form that was not of their own culture, but which they had already made their own..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.67) - "[They] injected punk-style vim and humour into covering heroes Leadbelly and Sleepy John Estes, while firing up their own spirited homages."0.1594749

Rolling Stone (10/29/92, p.69) - 3.5 Stars - Good Plus - "...It's a song older than Waits himself--older than Hank Williams, older than Robert Johnson--that Waits is chasing...Albums this rich with spiritual longing prove the validity of that effort..."Spin (12/92, p.68) - Ranked #13 in Spin's list of the `20 Best Albums Of The Year' - "...leaves you breathless in amazement that anyone could be this friggin' weird and cool...a shining collection of tunes..."Spin (11/92, p.115) - Highly Recommended - "...Waits keeps getting weirder--and better--proving that you can live life in sinful disgrace and come out somehow purer in the end..."Entertainment Weekly (9/17/92, p.65) - "...You never know when you're going to be shocked, thrilled, or just plain unnerved by some startling image or sound...As modern songwriters go, [Waits] is one of the few who does matter..." - Rating: A+Q (10/92, p.100) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...a formidable talent who is surely the true heir to Captain Beefheart...in an era when even the fringes of cultural enterprise are becoming increasingly dominated by market pandering, his is the bravest of stances..."Alternative Press (12/92, p.75) - "...the apocalyptic howl which is Waits' strongest calling card positively bowls you over..."Dirty Linen (Apr/May 93, p.75) - "...a musical sideshow; not one full of bogus wonders, but rather, applicable sounds and images. It doesn't have to be all popsicles and icicles, you know. And Tom Waits remains oh-so valid..."Option (Nov.-Dec./92, p.151) - "...his best album ever....Waits--poignant, brilliant, and original--is beyond all comparisons..."Melody Maker (9/12/92, p.45) - "...Waits doesn't prettify, he just simplifies, as the best storytellers must...shows his roots in the spirituals of black American slaves, gospel, Leadbelly's blues and the Depression folk of Woody Guthrie...weird and wonderful..."Musician (10/92, p.99) - "...one of the most singular-sounding albums to come along in some time...BONE MACHINE should be counted among [Waits's] best efforts--deeply weird, aggressively sardonic and, at its greasy core, painfully humane..."Village Voice (3/2/93, p.5) - Ranked #9 in the Village Voice's list of the 40 Best Albums Of 1992.Stereo Review (1/93, p.88) - "...BONE MACHINE is minimalist music from hell, played on the bones of sinners and sung through the rusty, ravaged, and perhaps even channeled voice of the devil, who shovels coal through Waits's dreams..."Audio Magazine (1/93, p.150) - "...the folk music of the post-apocalypse...his most chilling and darkly humorous album to date..."0.1275799

From Robert Johnson to the Carter Family to a pre-bluegrass Bill Monroe - Smith's ear for greatness was uncanny." - Rating: AQ (9/00, p.116) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...This final volume is based on his 'content analysis' of the post-1932 Depression period....all the songs are just plain bizarre and have recurring or interwoven themes....it's the CD gift of the season for those in the know."The Wire (1/01, p.34) - Included in Wire's "50 Records Of The Year" [2000].The Wire (5/00, p.58) - "...Decades of crackle and fuzz have become inextricable parts of these songs, ghost channels that seem to calling directly over time, a little ruptured window onto another world.
