    Like the band's best '80s output, Lilac6 is the work of a bona fide songsmith. [Nov 2001, p.108]
  2. 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.
  3. Pleasantly pastoral. [Nov 2001, p.86]
  4. This wry examination of life and love and growing older might be some of his best work yet.
  5. Lilac6 is as effortlessly subtle and debonair as 1999's reformation album.
  6. A smart, sensitive blend of head and heart.
  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.
