    Thompson's pure, effortlessly soaring vocals feel undimmed by time. [#9, p.156]
  2. Nearly everything on Fashionably Late has a pristinely modulated solemnity, a refined, literal-minded perfection.... In a sense, Fashionably Late is too good--too enamored of the aesthetic straight and narrow, of reverse sentimentality--for its own good.

    A return that is as warmly welcome as it is wholly unexpected. [Oct 2002, p.122]
