  1. [Johnston's] most focused and rewarding album in ages. [12 Oct 2001, p.88]
  2. Rejected Unknown is a musically rich, catchy-as-hell, sad-as-all-fucking-get-out journey.
  3. If there is a problem with Rejected Unknown, it is the similarity of Johnston's melodies and delivery.
  4. 60
    Rejected Unknown proves why those fans are so devoted. [Oct/Nov 2001, p.106]
  5. As with most of Johnston's albums, there a few songs that just fall flat or come off as a little too coy, but overall, it's a quality addition to the catalog of one of songwriting's true originals.
