Rolling Stone (p.64) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he arrangements are elegantly spare: subtle works of guitar, bass, keyboards, percussion, occasional backup singers and, at the center of it all, Morrison's incomparable voice, as expressive as ever.'Entertainment Weekly (p.61) - "The title track shows that time has little withered Van Morrison's voice....There are moments during this self-penned collection of bluesy numbers that the Irishman does indeed KEEP IT SIMPLE." -- Grade: BUncut (p.103) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] a 24-carat Morrison classic, the deconstructionist meditation 'Behind The Ritual'. Simple for him it may be -- but, really, no one else does anything like it."Down Beat (p.81) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Morrison uses his marvelously malleable voice to take the listener on a low-key, but highly evocative, tour of his musical influences and experiences."No Depression (p.67) - "Blues shuffles and country ballads are the templates for much of KEEP IT SIMPLE....'Song Of Home' is a sweet country waltz..."Record Collector (magazine) (p.98) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] sturdy set of impeccably-played blues and soul with little of the garnish he's previously used to paper over the cracks of less powerful material."87.08669

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.
