  1. Nonstoperotik showcases Black’s gift for mixing the sinful with the sublime.

    He's rarely assembled a stronger collection of songs. [May 2010, p.102]
  3. As it happens, most of these songs are rockers, and even the ballads possess a toughened core of energy.
  4. It reaffirms Black Francis’ place as a great songwriter in the rock pantheon.
  5. If the younger Black Francis might have transformed a cover of the Flying Burrito Brothers' "Wheels" into a cool surf epic rather than a Velvet Underground-inspired reconstruction, the elder delivers an intriguing mix of vitality and cool detachment. It's easy to take those seemingly at-odds qualities for granted, but here Black Francis sounds not just comfortable with that aesthetic but surprisingly and paradoxically in control of it as well.
  6. Even if this isn’t some of Francis’ most striking work, it continues the more personal vein of songwriting he began exploring after the Pixies.
  7. Under The Radar
    30
    Over the wandering course of these 11 tracks, Francis is the aural equivalent of a boxer who's had five too many concussions coming out for one last payday. [Spring 2010, p.68]

    Black Francis doesn't run out of ideas. One might say he goes a bit soft here, but I don't think so. It is cleaner than Bluefinger, but stillBlack Francis doesn't run out of ideas. One might say he goes a bit soft here, but I don't think so. It is cleaner than Bluefinger, but still a raw little collection of ballads. Expand
