    Shallow melodies, beats that date back to the 60, ABSOLUTELY nothing original in the lyrics, copy of a copy of a mediocre album made by some crappy band in the early 70. As for the voice, it sounds like the singer acidentally sniffed a bit too much of his nail polish and then passed it to the rest of the band. That aint no music.

    It's a record best consumed in a semi-recumbent position, in order to match the loping, laidback pace of the music and Cox's stoned, oak-aged vocals. [Dec. 2011 p. 99]

    Some tracks are more outre than others... but throughout his sustained, idiosyncratic vision is absorbing. [Dec. 2001 p. 123]

    Dreamy, classic-sounding pop nuggets, sung by Cox with a wry, casual authority. [Jan 2011, p.79]
