Rolling Stone (4/13/00, pp.133-4) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...Predictably unpredictable....[they] settle into a single stylistic groove of melancholy electric ballads and languid reggae....a band of survivors who are as comfortable with shattering continuity as they are with embodying it."Spin (6/00, p.162) - 8 out of 10 - "...Strong, if only subtly rocking....It sounds richly upholstered, gathering back compatriots like fiddler Susie Honeyman, with umpteen vocalists chiming in and around each other. Imagine: They've turned the Flying Dutchman into a cruise ship."Q (8/00, p.102) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...The emphasis is on punk-tinged reggae that runs through tunefully gloomy songs....not so much a career summary as another port of call on a grand, rickety voyage..."Alternative Press (5/00, pp.95-6) - 4 out of 5 - "...a quiet, unsettled yet strangely comforting mood that suggests a late night spent in contemporary flashback....an uplifting collection of songs that suggests that one need not be alone in the darkness..."CMJ (3/6/00, p.26) - "...With the erudite, economical lyrics, and their knack for linking up country gin joints and urban reggae dancehalls with their gruff waltzes...[they] once again take the poor boy/girl up to the ivory tower and make it swing."Dirty Linen (6-7/00, p.75) - "...Ragged experimentalism colors almost every song...there's a folky sense of storytelling and a pop sense....[Their] post-apocalyptic pessimism is combined with literary skill, and bleak social realism is punctuated with humor."0.1376255

Rolling Stone (2/3/00, p.61) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...a rainbow unto itself, from the silvery plunk of his National steel guitar and the brown-dirt honesty of his singing to the scuffed-gold horns blowing behind him in 'Congo Square Rag'....GREENS is a big meal, but all natural..."Q (6/99, p.105) - 4 out of 5) - Excellent - "...this is primarily acoustic blues without the alcohol and late nights, but with as much cornbread, gravy and good times."CMJ (4/19/99, p.31) - "...invigorating mix of Delta-style blues songs turned inside out by a madcap attitude and influences ranging from reggae to ragtime."Dirty Linen (8-9/99, p.86) - "...a nicely diverse and interesting collection of songs interspersed with comments about and favorite recipies for greens."Living Blues (7-8/99, p.51) - "...speaks to the fact that roots music - broadly interpreted - is enjoying a renaissance that is not dependent simply on recreating older sounds.
