    Cherished Canuck crooner recruits Metallica's producer. [March 2011, p. 95]

    Sexsmith's music just gets better, and his 12th album actually sounds eerily close to a classic Costello.

    Sexsmith doesn't do anything on Long Player Late Bloomer that he hasn't done before, but this time out, he's had the right help in the studio to make an album that will sound as good to casual observers as his dedicated fans, and that's what sets this apart: if you've ever wanted to introduce yourself to the work of one of the finest songwriters in North America, Long Player Late Bloomer is just the album to get.

    Long Player, Late Bloomer is a record certainly worthy of being played for a long, long time to come.

    This is immaculate pop appointed with sighing pedal steel, slide guitars, and saloon piano--but in need of a few more scuff marks to underline its turbulent lyrics.

    Like the best of LPLB, it's a song that deserves every little extra production punch it can get, and Rock doesn't let it down.
