  1. Pizza Box is a long way from the punky bluegrass of the Bad Livers, and may be the best album Barnes has ever made.
  2. Some songs hint at the Band, but Mr. Barnes also cranks up to feedback volume on the stomping “Road.” Behind his down-home magical realism is an underlying benevolence.
  3. Barnes is a clever lyricist with a punk-rock past who understands the raw simplicity of a good country tune.
  4. The now-Pacific Northwester's tart vocals almost as pointillistic as his picking, percussion big and roomy beneath him.
