  1. Nothing here is flashy, which is keeping in a long tradition of Hunter's and is yet another reason why he's often called underrated, but when he's making records as rich and resonant as Man Overboard at the age of 70, it's hard not to listen with not a small degree of wonder.
  2. The New Milford transplant has released a slew of solo albums, including the excellent new collection Man Overboard.
  3. 80
    Man Overboard doesn’t quite scale the heights of its predecessor, even containing a stumble or two ('Girl From The Office,' with Hunter playing the cad, falls flat), but it still offers plenty.
  4. Mojo
    [It is] a testament to Hunter's ongoing vim. [Sep 2009, p.96]
