    There's nothing insubstantial about this fabulous comeback. [May 2013, p.68]

    Amazingly, this is his first new studio album in 14 years, but it sounds as relaxed, intimate and gently startling as anything he has recorded.

    Each of the 11 new songs on Bottom Of The World twinkles mournfully, chamber-country meditations which blend the playful and sinister in his patented fantasia set in the US-Mexico borderlands. [May 2013, p.95]

    Admittedly not for everyone, Allen's music continues to breathe rare air, both haunting and delightfully thought provoking.

    Allen is quite the philosopher on The Bottom of the World as he ponders the meaning of life, sex, and dreams to a sparse musical accompaniment.

    [The album is] spare, poignant, dark and dry. [Jul 2013, p.92]
