    He still has plenty to communicate, his music not losing any creative potency over the years.

    John Cale's new five-track EP conceives and executes more great ideas in 21 minutes than most musicians do in 10 years.

    Extra Playful lives up to its title. [Oct 2011, p.63]

    This set of witty pop songs fits perfectly in the musical panorama of the last 15 years: there are no underground rock references, no orchestral pop sensibilities, no vacuous attempts at updating a 'decades-old' sound to modern audiences.

    Extra Playful is as easygoing and steady rolling as he's ever sounded, serving up hooks, elegant Euro-beats, and a modicum of glee in poking fun at his own uptight image.

    Certainly no misnomered record, Extra Playful sounds more fun, excited and full of joie de vivre than anything else in Cale's extensive discography.
