CD The Very Best Of [2003 Bonus DVD]
Rolling Stone (11/13/03, pp.100-1) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...It's a dream package that unerringly documents Henley and Frey's Eagle-eyed view of the 1970s, from the earthly paradise to fast-lane trap..."Q (Summer/01, p.118) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Delivers he soundtrack of '70s LA and they remain the definitive male harmony group of their era..."
CD Pup Tent [Luna]
Rolling Stone (8/21/97, p.110) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...Wareham's wordplay is as subtle and affecting as the group's interplay....he sprinkles his relationship songs with vivid, scene-setting snapshots..."Entertainment Weekly (8/8/97, p.79) - "...The band's increasingly assured songcraft is filtered through the mood-drenched sensibilities frontman Dean Wareham learned a long time ago in a Galaxie far, far away. The effect is blissfully disorienting--like awakening from an afternoon nap." - Rating: AOption (11-12/97, p.105) - "...Luna's charm lies in that they can flip from one influence to another without a break in stride....they make records that keep the listener suspended between moods, unsure if the music makes you achingly sad or strangely comforted..."Melody Maker (8/9/97, p.50) - "...dive into this tributary to the mainstream and you're likely to come up with your ear bitten off....their third step on the haiku path to heaven..."
CD Whereabouts [Ron Sexsmith]
Rolling Stone (6/10/99, p.122) - 3 1/2 out of 5 - "...Ron writes and sings sweetly droopy songs that melt the heart and assuage the soul. Sexsmith brings an expanded palette to WHEREABOUTS: banjos and clarinets, piccolos and English horns, all enriching his deceptively direct...songs"Spin (8/99, p.158) - 8 out of 10 - "...[Sexsmith] tackles...enigmas in guileful songs that [Langston Hughes] might have admired. The singer's well-ordered melodies flesh out phrases that would hit like cliches from a less gifted artist....WHEREABOUTS offers many morsels of epiphany..."Entertainment Weekly (5/28/99, p.144) - "...Producers Mitchell Froom and Tchad Blake do a wonderfully understated job of colorizing Sexsmith's sad-kid melodies and voice....Call it buoyant sorrow." - Rating: AQ (7/99, p.124) - 4 stars (out of 5) - "...Sexsmith has always used an autumnal palatte, here the golden leaves are piled neck-high..."CMJ (5/24/99, p.5) - "...Sexsmith's writing speaks as much about the more upbeat feelings of hope and empathy as they do the bleakest ones of sorrow and isolation....His delivery is casual and his points are finely drawn, but his way with words makes the mundane seem achingly poignant."Melody Maker (6/19/99, p.52) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...[WHEREABOUTS] is wry, reflective and elegant....Seek Sexsmith out..."New Music Monthly (7/99, p.56) - "...compact, tuneful melodies play out long enough for you to remember them fondly....a strong effort...that makes you want to get to know this Sexsmith character a little better."
CD That Lucky Old Sun [Slipcase] [CD] [1 disc]
Rolling Stone (p.70) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[H]e sings with a reborn will, even when the truth hurts....It has a natural, hopeful flow that leaves you warm all over."Rolling Stone (p.92) - Ranked #27 in Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums Of 2008 -- "This modest treasure has the same warm glow of the Beach Boys' WILD HONEY."Spin (p.116) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Sweetly and unmistakably, THAT LUCKY OLD SUN limns the sunset of Wilson's career, while still showing how California is at its most beautiful through his eyes."Billboard (p.41) - "Wilson and his collaborators create richly arranged and orchestrated pop songs as well as four poetic spoken-word narratives that give the album a trippy, avant edge."Paste (magazine) (p.60) - "[A]lternately gorgeous and gut-wrenching....If you are about this tortured genius and his music, THAT LUCKY OLD SUN is an essential yet gripping narrative."
