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."160.1615

Entertainment Weekly (p.72) - "'Brandy Alexander' is a playful, brass-enhanced Van Morrison-type treat....There are other nice moments here, from the soul-folk of 'One Last Round' to the mournful crooning of 'Hard Time'..."Q (Magazine) (p.110) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[He] has perfected the forlorn angst of a middle-aged man. 'One Last Round,' for example, is about a world gone bad, and he sounds perfectly at home in its downcast melancholy."Paste (magazine) (p.76) - "Sexsmith's melodies connect instantly -- the two instrumentals that open and close the CD are sublime hymns; spectral, unearthly and rare..."112.113

Rolling Stone (4/25/02, p.80) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...The high-toned alternative rockers on this 16-track compendium play it simple, letting the structural delights of the Kinks' eccentric hard mod-rock shine through the quirks of their individual treatments..."Spin (5/02, pp.123-124) - 8 out of 10 - "...A brand-name affair, with a few ideas that [sound] better [than other tributes]..."Q (4/02, p.126) - 3 out of 5 stars - "...A cap-doffing excercise featuring Lambchop, Josh Rouse and Damon Albarn..."Mojo (Publisher) (6/02, p.106) - "...Worth checking for fine Lambchop, Josh Rouse, Ron Sexsmith and Tim O'Brien contributions..."0.7172071
