    It's Ron, baby! So it is, like all his other work, beautiful, moving and mellow. A more piano-based album than his previous work so as an album seems quieter - more introspective.

  1. Exit Strategy of the Soul isn't just an experiment that succeeds, it's one of Sexsmith's strongest and most affecting works to date, and it's truly a pleasure to hear.
  2. Exit Strategy finds Ron Sexsmith exploring his songwriting talent in new ways, crafting an instantly memorable album full of soulful, classic pop tunes.

    Sexsmith unwisely attacks some notes above his comfortable register on 'Impossible World,' which is just one of the several numbers that are nothing more than blandly forgettable. [11 Jul 2008, p.72]
