    It's one of the strongest efforts in Hazlewood's catalog, capturing his toughness, sentimentality, and oddball pop songcraft.

    It's a bona fide Lee Hazlewood classic: Mournful and orchestrated, imbued with a heart-rendering yearning. [Oct 2012, p.102]

    The music and images of Hazlewood singing to Axelman's family, running the Gotland marathon, and convincing Swedish children to take sides against Nixon turn both movie and album into a celebration of the enduring friendship between artist and director.

    It's familiar territory for fans, and a fun passage in his substantial discography. [Aug/Sep 2012, p.123]
