Critic score distribution:
  1. Positive: 12 out of 15
  2. Negative: 0 out of 15
  1. It may well be his strongest ever collection. [Feb 2006, p.98]
  2. [The] tension between Rubin's desire to pare it down and Diamond's tendency to amp it up makes for the best musical checks and balances; nothing gets too unplugged or too bombastic. [11 Nov 2005, p.67]
  3. Spiritual, lovelorn and vulnerable, this is the album Diamond has deserved for decades.
  4. 90
    The result is something of a songcraft master class.... A career best. [Dec 2005, p.150]
  5. 100
    It's stripped down (and we're not just talking about the jumpsuits), simple and the songwriter's best work in ages.
