Q (6/93, p.123) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...1984's SWOON was one of the decade's great debuts, thanks to Paddy McAloon's ingenuity and lyrical flight which married the muso flourishes of Steely Dan to the beat-pop of Postcard Records with some added Motown-via-Newcastle cod-soul..."93.16288

Rolling Stone (p.71) - "[The songs] were, like McQueen's acting, cool and nuanced yet tough and quietly tortured at the center."Spin (p.124) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "It wraps gossamer synths and ghostly background vocals around posh melodies that nod as much to Sondheim and Gershwin as to the rock canon."Q (p.134) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]heir work still stands up, especially STEVE MCQUEEN, the most succinct expression of McAloon's skills."Mojo (Publisher) (p.126) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hese songs are sweet postcards from the crepuscular fringes of romance, and sound as vibrant and as out of kilter as ever."65.21402

Entertainment Weekly (2/16/01, p.99) - "...Clearly wowed by his own cleverness, [Paddy MacAloon] folded 10CC pop froth into an arty mix of blue-eyed soul and show-tune gestures to make something uniquely his own..." - Rating: BAlternative Press (4/01, p.83) - 5 out of 5 - "...Ambitious, dynamic melodies and well-crafted lyrics. The arrangements range from lush to rockin' and hold-up remarkably to this day..."55.89773

Entertainment Weekly (5/20/94, p.63) - This British eccentric unabashedky embraces American soul that has more in common with Curtis Mayfield than with metal, and that contrasts with his equally cynical take on contemporary American life..." - Rating: BQ (3/95, p.96) - 3 Stars - Good - "...[FEARLESS] is a whole palette of subtler styles from Prefab Sprout to XTC and some cleverly constructed songs which don't stray too far from their emotional blues-rock roots..."0.7236629

Rolling Stone (5/24/01, p.86) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...A strong collection of Wilco-like ballads and pop-ish midtempo musings on love, loss and life lessons....a nice farewell from a band that was at the forefront of today's alt-country scene..."Spin (6/01, p.152) - 8 out of 10 - "...A great Saturday-morning record. Its woozy fiddles, grainy acoustic-electric guitars, and pop-strong harmonies give you the courage to face the day armed with roots-rock fortune cookery..."Entertainment Weekly (5/25/01, pp.80-1) - "...Raspy, elegant, sleepy...Strings, horns, and even a stray loop, up the lonesome ante....They exited with a gem..." - Rating: B+Q (7/01, p.125) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Songs that breathe the same rarefied air as Ryan Adams solo material....bringing to mind such disparate references as The Band, Cole Porter, and even a Deep South take on the breezy Prefab Sprout. Underpinning everything is [his] honey-and-smoke voice..."CMJ (5/14/01, p.4) - "...Offers insight into the artistoc progression of Adams and violinist/vocalist Caitlin Cary...Unyielding in its variety, from AM-radio/late Fleetwood Mac...to smooth, Martin Denny castanets and classic Hollywood symphonies..."No Depression (5-6/01, pp.122-3) - "...A masterfully assembled and brilliantly played collection of songs that jumps genres gleefully..."0.3618315
