    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!

    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.

  1. Sexsmith's gorgeous vocals and refined songwriting shine through.
  2. 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]
  3. Enjoyable, but a gold star or two short of his 1997 masterpiece, Other Songs.
