  1. A smart, sensitive blend of head and heart.
  2. Pleasantly pastoral. [Nov 2001, p.86]
  3. This wry examination of life and love and growing older might be some of his best work yet.
  4. Imagine a less sardonic John Wesley Harding, prone to occasional bouts of husky, Peter Gabriel-style vocal sincerity, and you'll have the basic idea.
  5. 80
    Like the band's best '80s output, Lilac6 is the work of a bona fide songsmith. [Nov 2001, p.108]
  6. Lilac6 is as effortlessly subtle and debonair as 1999's reformation album.
  7. Lilac6 is a much more musically upbeat album... and features a crop of enjoyable, summery pop songs that are hard to argue with in the middle of winter.
