    All told, a sunny delight. [Oct 2013, p.107]

    Trumpets, drums, vocals, violins, flutes, saxophones and cellos make for a much fuller, richer and more authentic sound than ever before.

    Had the album dropped in May, it could have complemented the season beautifully. Now, it'll have to settle for cushioning the winter months with its unabashed, bubbly vibes.

    Overlooking the rare lapse into anodyne mellowness, it would appear Evelyn's got his future-soul mojo back. [Nov 2013, p.75]

    Evelyn offers up the wiles and wisdom of a neighbourhood good guy, or more accurately, the distinction of an original Warp beat sage, providing contented listening caught lacing up a shelltoe.

    Once more, Nightmares On Wax provide the backing music to the party; once more, your enjoyment is only limited by your own imagination.

    While it may not be 1995 any more, few listening will care when the nostalgia is this expertly crafted.

    It may well appeal to those content with downtime after more forthright records. As an album, however, Evelyn’s good mood sits somewhere between decisive and whimsical.

    While there's nothing here to touch 1999's moving, Cinemascopic downtempo classic Les Nuits, it's an eclectic offering, deliberately in keeping with the Balearic paradigm Evelyn once helped shape. [Oct 2013, p.91]
  10. Sep 16, 2013
    Appropriately titled, the album exudes warmth but occasionally sounds so relaxed that it seems to lack inspiration--more suited for a department store soundtrack than vacation listening.

    Much of his old work still sounds more vital.
  12. 40
    While positivity is an accessible escape within music, his comeback surfaces nothing new, accumulating few tracks that stand out and many an overkill.
