    With Big Star now put to rest following the passing of Alex Chilton, Stamey is the rightful person to fill his shoes. Lovesick Blues offers more than enough proof that he's fully prepared to do just that.

    The songs, musically dazzling with strings and fetching arrangements, sometimes organise themselves into forceful hooks. [Mar 2013, p.77]

    Lovesick Blues requires a fair amount of digging from the listener, but those who put in the time will find much to treasure.

    Lovesick Blues is more a collection of great moments than great songs, although there are a few of those as well.

    Lovesick Blues once again proves Stamey's worth as a pop magician.
  7. 60
    Tinkling pianos, vibes, tablas, brushed drums, string quartets and the singer’s innocent, laid back vocals all make this wistful gem perfect for lazy Sunday mornings. But thankfully these meditative songs never feel dreary, mopey or self-pitying due to Stamey’s sheer joy and enthusiasm.
