Spin (11/96, pp.125-126) - 7 (out of 10) - "...in the great country tradition that spans Bob Wills and Asleep at the Wheel, [they] hear songs as reasons to jam, to say `Hey, there's a lot of music to this country music'....they're great players....[they make] purism seem pleasurable, not stiff-necked..."Entertainment Weekly (9/27/96, p.81) - "A nice little revivalist honky-tonk/rockabilly band....they're a breath of fresh air in Music City's stultifying major-label atmosphere, a portent of possible change to come."- Rating: B+Q (10/96, p.156) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...Effortlessly blending '50s jukebox classics...with their own originals,...BR5-49 are so knowingly and lovingly retro that they contrive to sound wonderfully fresh throughout..."0.2810806

Rolling Stone (3/9/95, pp.66-67) - 3.5 Stars - Very Good - "...there's always a riff or two that suggest that someone in the band has one hell of a record collection. That's fitting, since the Jayhawks reflect rock's past much more than its future. They're not backward looking, though--they just like their music simple and direct..."Spin (3/95, pp.96-97) - 7 - Recommended - "...They pick up where they left off, stranded between a promise and a hard place. The harmonies of [Gary] Louris and Mark Olson are as clean as the emotions are muddled, as though every beacon of grace was a mirage, and each hard-won blessing a curse..."Entertainment Weekly (2/17/95, p.59) - "...This is everything a country-rock album should be. Even those who normally can't stand the genre are likely to be seduced by the plaintive vocal harmonies, pristine melodies, and scrappy-but-lyrical guitar solos..." - Rating: A-Q (3/95, p.100) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Mark Olson and Gary Louris lead their slightly expanded six-piece band through a string of beautifully bracing folk-tinged pop songs stunning in their simplicity. Their trademark, winsome vocal harmonies move from aching to expansive with captivating ease..."Musician (6/95, pp.72-73) - "...when nostalgia is handled this eloquently and with such craft it's welcome....These songs contain moments of reflection and intimate sing-along hooks, just the kind of stuff that pervaded early FM "alternative" radio of yesteryear..."Village Voice (2/20/96) - Ranked #37 in Village Voice's 1995 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.Mojo (Publisher) (p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "TOMORROW THE GREEN GRASS reined in the Neil Young and ramped up The Waterboys as a backwoods fiddle sawed away throughout..."NME (Magazine) (2/18/95, p.49) - 7 - Very Good - "...the country harmonies that Mark Olson contrives with guitar hero Gary Louris attain that upliftingly sad tinge of gospel that was once the heavenly terrain of Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris..."Record Collector (magazine) (p.92) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "'I'd Run Away' and 'Miss Williams' Guitar' are the highlights..."0.1606175
