Magnet (p.58) - "The way it's all recorded is nearly as important as the performances themselves. There's a bedroom-artist immediacy at work that lends credence to the idea of these bursts sounding like they were recorded inside Orcutt's head."24.2667

Spin (4/95, p.199) - 8 - Highly Recommended - "...The blues' simple elegance still conveys emotional truths, which Chris Whitley jacks right into....DIN OF ECSTASY is mostly about eerie modes of dislocation....He talks about the million...ways you alienate the people you love because you're wasted and strung out..."Entertainment Weekly (3/10/95, p.68) - "...the once acoustic-minded Whitley creates a darkly ecstatic blues-rock canvas. With his white-blues grit and limber vocal expression, Whitley sings over tough electric guitar lines and clenched chords....DIN OF ECTASY is a fine din, indeed..." - Rating: A-Q (5/95, p.117) - 3 Stars - Good - "...feed[s] the blues through a grunge pedal to cross Soundgarden and Dinosaur Jr. with guitars more dense and terrifying than either..."Musician (5/95, p.92) - "...The modal melodies and churning rhythm work Whitley plays off bring out a new side of his slide work--imagine the Edge lost in the purple haze, and you'll have a sense of just how dizzying the solos get..."0.134578

Rolling Stone (p.69) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Nelson's distinctive vocal phrasing and nylon-string guitar leads peep through, providing a nice foil for the lush strings and syrupy backup choir."Uncut (p.106) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Nelson's vast, overwhelming discography has always needed a sharp edit, ONE HELL OF A RIDE certainly does the trick."Down Beat (p.78) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "Nelson sings with an earthiness yet also a state of transcendence.
