  1. It's not bad, it's just so goddamn mediocre.

    An homage to Memphis soul and R&B that initially seems a pleasant lark but grows blander and more characterless the more it is heard. [Apr 2002, p.106]
  3. Young's surprisingly conservative new album, Are You Passionate?, is simply frustrating, and worse, often as risk-averse as a CSNY reunion.

    An album that is a real grower - the soulful side of the legend. This is a lost classic.
