And sometimes that's just fine..."Entertainment Weekly (6/30-7/7/95, pp.96-97) - "...mostly three-chord stompers, and Pearl Jam seems content to kick out the jams behind him....aims for that anthemic mode of the Neil Young of old, and despite a few muddled chords and even more muddled lyrics, the collaborative magic works..." - Rating: A-Q (8/95, p.128) - 3 Stars - Good - "...a rough and ready collection of Young songs, alive with studio ambience and, well, grungy..."Melody Maker (6/17/95, p.37) - Recommended - "...VS. meets ON THE BEACH at ARC/WELD volume....What gets you first is the throb--the mantra-like whack of the hooks and the circular propulsion of the chord progressions....these aren't conventional songs, they're thunderclap soliloquies, raw grooves set to telegraphic narratives..."Musician (9/95, pp.85-86) - "...Part of what makes MIRROR BALL so moving is [a] sense of being unstuck in time, not so much musically--though the combination of Pearl Jam's uncompromised attack with Young's folk melodicism...suggests the spanning of generations--but by Young's vision..."Village Voice (2/20/96) - Ranked #5 in Village Voice's 1995 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.NME (Magazine) (12/23-30/95, pp.22-23) - Ranked #41 in NME's 'Top 50 Albums Of The Year' for 1995.NME (Magazine) (6/24/95, p.56) - 9 (out of 10) - "...as shabby, as unrehearsed, as rugged and raw as anything he's released.

Entertainment Weekly (8/11/95, p.53) - "...Harper is rootsy and raw on his upbeat material. And when he slows down for a ballad, he displays a gift for subtle rhythms and intimate, whispered vocalizing that speaks volumes."- Rating: B+Q (8/95, p.123) - 3 Stars - Good - "...colours all his...themes--love, politics and religion--with unsettling guitar tones which range from suave discords to sheer noise. Harper's vocals being an impatient murmur, it's often as if Nina Simone's band had been joined by Neil Young on ARC-WELD. He's deep, powerful and original..."Vibe (12/95-1/96, p.142) - "...treks down the highway of social injustice, aiming to cast out the world's problems while ushering in sensitivity and understanding....merge[s] the rage of the '60s with the frustrations of the '90s. A hybrid blessed by tradition, Harper's sound has nothing to do with retroactivity..."Option (1-2/96, p.97) - "...Harper is a genuinely gifted young singer/songwriter/guitarist with serious ambitions in folk, blues, gospel and rock'n'roll..."0.2042026

Rolling Stone (8/22/96) - 3-1/2 Stars - Good/Excellent - "...Mark Kozelek embellishes his typical graveyard folk with a Buddy Holly-ish rocker...a female-harmony vocal...and storms of Neil Young-style guitar distortion. The effect is freshening, at once looser, more varied and more textured than the band has often sounded in the past..."Entertainment Weekly (8/9/96, pp.58-59) - "...Post-folkie acoustic guitar mixes with Crazy Horse-like electric gnarl, and dreamy pedal steel enhances the languor. Kozelek makes music of hope and gloom, sad-eyed but vivid: His song-poetry seems to be of this world and also unplugged from it."- Rating: A-Q (9/96, p.120) - 3 Stars - Good - "...the album metamorphoses into a thoughtful, but far more dynamic group affair. Sure, there's the heartbreak, the flat world theories, but there's also strident Neil Youngian guitar....a highly entertaining, well off the wall album."Alternative Press (10/96, pp.98-100) - "...the what-the-hell approach to recording has served Red House Painters well..."0.2042026

Spin (10/99, p.155) - 7 out of 10 - "...rustic twang....suggests an idealized version of 70s country radio, as if Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn tracks were slowed down a touch and played alongside Neil Young's 'Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere'..."Alternative Press (11/99, p.100) - 4 out of 5 - "...Freakwater keep getting better, and on [END TIME] the ladies have expanded their countrified sound to allow for their burgeoning abilities as singer-songwriters..."Dirty Linen (2-3/00, p.74) - "...one of [alt-country's] leading spirits, a modern day representation of the hard-living, age-old country tradition....[The album] deals with booze, seedy characters, wretched lives, and even a bloodthirsty dog....what could be more country than that?"Country Music People (1/00, pp.32-3) - 4.5 out of 5 - "...Janet Beveridge Bean and Catherine Ann Irwin are the voices of Freakwater, weaving and interlacing throughout like the ghosts of Appalachia past confronting the modern world....To hear music this pure is a rare treat..."Mojo (Publisher) (11/99, p.114) - "...a lusher, more welcoming wash of strings and pedal steel, END TIME finds Freakwater going somewhere new without leaving their souls behind....songs that sound like Hank Williams covers and [sung] with enough emotion to make dogs cry..."0.2042026

Rolling Stone (2/6/97, p.49) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...Built To Spill dip into the psychedelic garden cultivated by guitar-based precursors, from the Beatles to the Flaming Lips....maintains an emphasis on instrumental passages that are short on flash, but long on atmospheric swirl..."Spin (2/97, p.84) - 8 (out of 10) - "...Martsch's ability to avoid derivativeness,...to keep generating ideas and achieve bigness through the accumulation of small parts [amazes]. Let the pieces of this album sink in and, sure enough, you won't be able to get Martsch's sounds out of your head."Entertainment Weekly (1/31/97, p.58) - "...Muddling around in a fog of spacey guitar, nasal vocals, and meandering song structures, they seem to stumble on melodies by accident....When the fuzzy guitar lines and pinched vocal whines mysteriously mutate into recognizable songs, the band discovers beauty in excess." - Rating: B+Alternative Press (4/97, p.65) - 5 (out of 5) - "...Martsch is posessed with a genius for...lyric writing and the ability to create memorable and unusual songs....although its entertaining enough to appeal to a wide audience, PERFECT still contains enough personality to make Martsch's excellent vision uniquely his own."Melody Maker (5/16/00, p.47) - 3 stars out of 5 - "If Neil Young singing with some sort of Radiohead/Seventies-metallers Rush amalgam appeals, this is the album for you..."Village Voice (2/24/98) - Ranked #32 in the Village Voice's 1997 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.0.1701688

Rolling Stone (p.99) - 4 stars out of 5 - "Even the ballads bristle with force. As these thirteen songs rattle and rumble along, it's easy to miss their depth, their incisive mapping of the places where love, obsession and anger intersect."Rolling Stone (p.142) - Included in Rolling Stone's Top 50 Records Of 2004 - "Costello's best full-on rock album since BLOOD AND CHOCOLATE..."Uncut (p.104) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[T]his is a strong and lusty country-punk album placing him in Tom Waits or Neil Young territory....He hasn't sounded this energized for years."Uncut (p.76) - Ranked #34 in Uncut's "Best New Albums of 2004" - "A strong country influence with lots of steel guitar..."CMJ (p.5) - "[I]t's done right....Elvis welcomes guest Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams to add the heartbreak you can only get from male/female vocal interplay."Mojo (Publisher) (p.62) - Ranked #41 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "A fun Costello album? You're looking at it."Mojo (Publisher) (p.97) - 5 stars out of 5 - "So: songs terrific, band sensational, and - big plus - Costello's voice late-developing way beyond that pinched whine into an instrument of substance and character."0.1701688
