Down Beat (2/96, p.49) - 4.5 Stars - Very Good/Excellent - "...[Rush] wrings tense, trembling though his life were on the line....The vivid cry of his guitar lines and forceful chordal strokes find agreement in his smooth yet anguished singing everywhere on the program. In his feverish quest to express himself, Rush even pushes beyond the standard protocol of blues and embarks on jazzy solo flights..."Musician (11/95, p.93) - "...Heard in a lean quartet format, backed by a strong band..., Rush is at his jazziest, twirling out clotted, unpredictable licks hither and yon. His straining, impassioned singing is in near-top form as well..."0.8568159

Rolling Stone (4/15/04, p.151) - 3 stars out of 5 - "Sounding like the work of a high-pitched Tom Waits, Banhart's second album is full of alternately fragile and quirky folk songs..."Q (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[E]ven more mesmeric and deep into Nick Drake territory: intense and slightly damaged, especially on the stark love songs..."Uncut (p.90) - 4 stars out of 5 - "REJOICING...feels like the work of a man in the midst of a prodigious creative spurt."Uncut (p.74) - Ranked #26 in Uncut's "Best New Albums of 2004" - "[A] mystical trip into an eerie neverland of joyful bohemian blues."Magnet (p.87) - "With his trembling tenor, Banhart continues to traverse the surreal, telling the tales of laughing lemon trees, milky suns and dancing teeth....It's a mesmerizing journey through the dark heart of Brooklyn's lost boy."Mojo (Publisher) (p.106) - 4 stars out of 5 - "Banhart wraps his songs in a gorgeously quavering warble that seems lifted right off some blues mama's dusty 78. A nearly flawless left-field folk."0.1777725
