Rolling Stone (3/23/95, p.124) - 3.5 Stars - Very Good - "...At times, everything in Morphine sounds like it's playing the rhythm--the intertwining sax and bass line, the lyrics' syllabic pop....For all their sultriness, Morphine do rock out, and like the best jazz, they swing at any tempo..."Entertainment Weekly (3/17/95, p.88) - "...it's tough to keep any sound from seeming stale, especially one as eccentric and seemingly limited as Morphine's bass, drums, and baritone sax lineup. YES generally succeeds, adding energy to the band's muscular `low rock'..." - Rating: B+Q (2/96, p.65) - Included in Q's 50 Best Albums of 1995.Q (5/95, p.109) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Morphine still pull off the difficult trick of sounding fresh while making you feel you've heard it all before."Alternative Press (5/95, pp.71-72) - "...Morphine have turned their aesthetic slightly askew, with some songs as heady as the concoction of a Lucky Strike snubbed into a battered ashtray smoldering into the mist of a cheap perfume. Turn up the collar on your coat and stagger away, smiling..."Melody Maker (4/22/95, p.33) - "...Morphine's after-hours world of hustlers, losers, drug addicts and wronged lovers [has a] dramatic momentum that doesn't let up until the last tale has come to its inevitably sorry end....the absence of guitar...bring[s] some authenticity to the story, the lo-fi, jazz feel of the sax blending in brilliantly with the literary ghosts evoked by the bass..."Musician (6/95, pp.73-74) - "...amplifies their trenchcoat take on rock 'n' roll, a take that has chiseled a place for itself even though it's threaded with anachronisms and prone to contradiction....bridges the emotional gap between John Lee Hooker's moaning stealth and Last Exit's frenzied abstraction..."19.44055
