  1. The protest songs on Just Us Kids, particularly 'Cheney's Toy,' will hog all the attention, but they're the least of this roots rocker's treasures here. It's James McMurtry's brilliant character sketches that really shine.
  2. Live, McMurtry can still be way too strophic and trad. But he's never made an album so loud or hard.
  3. In such stories, McMurtry locates again and again an element of humanity that saves his angriest screeds from easy pigeonholing.
