    One of the best albums I've heard this year. Totally underrated. I don't understand why the critics don't rate this album higher, maybe because Amos has changed his sound? Don't know, but I sure like it. Take a listen today!!!

    I fully agree with the other reviewer. While I have loved some older Lee songs, and not loved some, Mission Bell, with only 1 or 2 exceptions, is a consistently well crafted album, displaying soulful songs, Lee's superb voice, and of course, Willie at the end, who adds to the excellence of this release.

    His soulful singing charms throughout. [25 Feb 2011, p.83]

    Lee is so commanding that guests Lucinda Williams and Willie Nelson are drawn into top-of-the-range duets and still don't take over. [Feb 2011, p.96]

    A handsomely crafted affair of aching sincerity and a light pleasing soulful touch. What's missing are a couple of standout tracks to get the ball rolling. [Feb 2011, p.124]
