  • Summary: Paul Westerberg's blues-playin' alter ego returns with a second album (following 'Mono,' which was packaged with Westerberg's 'Stereo' release).

    So wild and stripped-down it makes The White Stripes sound like Yes. [Jan 2004, p.102]
  2. Garage rock at its finest, messiest and most welcomingly insignificant.
  3. Dead Man Shake is a kick in the pants that shouldn't be missed.
  4. A shambolic, blues-based record that will repel purists of the 12-bar form but delight anyone who brings a six-pack and a cockeyed sense of humor to the party.
  5. The songs aren't as urgent or as memorable as the cracked gems he used to write, but his voice is wonderfully ragged. [13 Nov 2003, p.99]
  6. 50
    It's great fun, but Come Feel Me Tremble has more ballast. [Nov 2003, p.123]
  7. A moribund collection of ragged but never rugged songs. [Jan 2004, p.114]
