  1. Somedays the Song Writes You is another choice album from one of the greatest songwriters to ever come out of the state of Texas.
  2. Clark has served notice that he’s still here, and that those old hands haven’t yet gone still. Stuff that works, indeed.

    Somedays is full of great, blues-tinted folk songs. [Nov 2009, p.102]
  4. 60
    The highlights: beautiful 'Hemingway's Whiskey;' spooky 'The Guitar;' and his moving, midtempo, backporchy cover of best friend Townes' 'If I Needed You.'
  5. Like everything he's put out over the course of a nearly 40-year career, not a note or word is out of place, crafted with immense care and intent.
  6. Clark has penned some classics through the years--'L.A. Freeway' and 'Desperados Waiting for a Train'--but this new album settles for too many dirge tempos and not enough inspiration.
