    That's a typical record that will bored you to death if you are not an American. Extra-over-rated local stuff! Give us a break!

  1. It's hard not to stare in open-mouthed amazement at the sheer brilliance of Black Sheep Boy, though you're trying to clinically dissect all the elements that make it so.

    [Sheff's] uncompromisingly literate songs provide unusually rewarding payoffs. [May 2005, p.124]

    What strike most are Sheff's strained, impassioned vocals and the joyful variety of instrumentation. [#67, p.110]
