Rolling Stone (8/10/95, p.60) - "...Newman's drawling, bluesy vocals cut against the lush conventionality of the settings like a squirt of lemon juice in milk....One of the most deliciously unsettling albums ever made."Q (4/00, p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Cynical, ironic and venomous, it sets the stage for 30 years of nasty songs..."Mojo (Publisher) (7/95, p.113) - "...Everything that's great about Randy Newman can be found [here]...the benign condescension towards Middle America ('The Beehive State'), the effortlessly modulated melancholy ('Living Without You')...and the elaborate orchestrations betraying the influence of his movie-scoring uncles..."NME (Magazine) (2/14/00, p.42) - 7 out of 10 - "...an oddball hybrid of burlesque show tunes and sardonic singer-songwriting....makes for edifying listening..."183.3758

Q (7/93, p.111) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...An LP that's as wicked a blend of poignancy and pungency as any other in his catalogue.

Q (p.125) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "Newman carved out an idiosyncratic niche rooted in biting satire and traditional pop structures."Mojo (Publisher) (3/00, p.116) - "...replaced the orchestra with an Americana rock rhythm section...and the more conventional presentation found Newman a college audience attuned to his wry singularity..."NME (Magazine) (2/14/00, p.42) - 6 out of 10 - "...marked the beginning of his ascent to the rock elite when 'Mama Told Me Not To Come' became a massive hit when covered by Three Dog Night..."104.5834

Entertainment Weekly (10/27/95, pp.94-95) - "...Newman obviously favors the Devil, and besides playing him, he gets most of the New Orleans shuffles. Eat your soul out, Andrew Lloyd Webber." - Rating: AUncut (6/03, p.113) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...There's no denying the quality and bite of the songwriting on display here..."Musician (11/95, p.87) - "...a bit of a mess...but a likeable one....a very modern FAUST--the Devil is kind of personable, Faust is a schmuck, and God just wants to have fun."New York Times (Publisher) (1/6/96, p.C16) - Included in Stephen Holden's list of the Top 10 Albums of `95 - "...includes his most corrosively funny songs in more than two decades..."91.72316

Rolling Stone (3/18/04, p.72) - 4 stars out of 5 - "McKay's penchant for offhand satire and warped musical-comedy allusions aligns her [with] skewed songsmiths such as Randy Newman and Van Dyke Parks.
