  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. Barnes is a clever lyricist with a punk-rock past who understands the raw simplicity of a good country tune.
  3. 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.
  4. The now-Pacific Northwester's tart vocals almost as pointillistic as his picking, percussion big and roomy beneath him.
