  1. The disc's gritter sound, courtesy of producer Steve Earle, is a perfect complement to Sexsmith's "Waterloo Sunset" croon... [6/8/2001, p.76]

    Sexsmith doesn't succumb to a single false move or note. [#51, p.112]
  3. A very clear sounding Sexsmith singing in his Tim Hardin-quaver about the art of song, the loss of love and other intense philosophical insights that only a softspoken guy would concern himself with.
  4. Sexsmith's gorgeous vocals and refined songwriting shine through.

    incredible album. A great indication of where Ron was headed in giving us his next two classic albums. This one is nearly flawless as well.

    No action. Steve Earle's production almost sounds like a parody -- although of what, I can't be sure. MOR drivel.

    Ranks right up there with his previous masterpieces!
