Living Blues (5-6/91) - "Most well known as a guitarist but also skilled on the piano...His rhythms were complex and his playing could be so fast as to be unbelievable. His singing style made use of a haunting falsetto uncommon, but certainly not unheard of, in the blues...37.53714

Down Beat (2/00, p.70) - 4 out of 5 - "With his cloudy intonation and sensually nonchalant vocal delivery in sharp contrast to the glasslike clarity of his guitar picking, Phelps puts across a strong program dominated by original tunes....unfailingly perceptive [lyrics]..."Living Blues (1-2/95, p.105) - "...he can conjure up eerie and complex tones reminiscent of Ry Cooder's instrumental opening to the film `The Long Ryders.' Phelps bows to Skip James and Joe Calicott; the rest of the set consists of originals that mine the traditional blues themes of women and travel, with a little religion thrown in just in case."0.3378673

Clash (magazine) (p.99) - "Cat Power, as ever, stands out, with a version of 'Amazing Grace' that could put a lump in the throat of even the most hardened cynic.

Rolling Stone (p.70) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]ts crudely recorded ballads and occasional bursts of gnarly distortion are clear precursors to the beats-based folk-hop of 'Loser.'"Rolling Stone (12/29/94-1/12/95, p.174) - "...a naked-strum treat of Dylanesque tripwire lyricism and post-punk field-holler pop."Spin (10/94, pp.108-110) - Recommended - "...Beck, after all, is the first '70s brat to further the folkie tradition (an acoustic guitar and deferred dream) by acknowledging hip hop as the most compelling `80s-`90s voice of the pissed and dissed..."Alternative Press (11/94, p.81) - "...He's always seductively lazy, spinning out throwaway songs with a disarming casualness yet managing to insinuate a subversive musical deconstruction into everything..."Option (9-10/94, p.92) - "...ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE distills the songwriter's essence in 16 phenomenal tracks drawing from the traditional country-blues and gospel that inspired the Pussy Galore fan to pick up an acoustic guitar in the first place..."NME (Magazine) (12/9/95, p.39) - 7 (out of 10) - "...as a demonstration of what can be done with a battered acoustic guitar, three chords and a beautifully tired, twisted reading of the truth, it has few peers." Entertainment Weekly (8/5/94, p.52) - "...presents our hero as an earnest young student of vernacular American music..." - Rating: B+Pitchfork (Website) - "[I]t's his personal take on Americana....This is Beck, rustic..."Record Collector (magazine) (p.79) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Contrasting with MELLOW GOLD's hip-hop folk, OFITG pulled up Beck's traditional folk and blues roots....Just like the Delta bluesmen, Beck sees decay around every corner..."Uncut (magazine) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] Dylanesque wordplay, some good jokes...[and] also a faithful Skip James cover..."0.1689336
