  1. With this outing, Harvey establishes himself not only as a fine composer, but as a songwriter.
  2. This is an album of varied pleasures: it doesn't grab you by the scruff of the neck but it pulls insistently at your arm until you have to take notice.
  3. The collection of emotionally brutal songs found on One Man's Treasure is delivered with the vision of a cowboy looking at life through the bottom of a glass of whisky.
  4. It's not quite as engaging as Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, but in a pinch it will do.
  5. 60
    A moody and restrained affair. [Oct 2005, p.108]
  6. 60
    Maybe all originals next time? [Sep 2005, p.89]
  7. Harvey's voice is not worthy of heavyweight songwriting. Still, when the songs are lighter, he succeeds. [Oct 2005, p.117]
