  1. Hints of glam and punk inform the rootsy proceedings, giving these alternately gritty and lyrical songs a satisfying glow.
  2. Street Songs of Love is the most raucous, rawest, and finest album Escovedo's yet released.
  3. 80
    Escovedo is as reflective as he is melodic. [Juul 2010, p.116]
  4. While his weathered humanity may be better captured on sublime offerings like More Miles Than Money, it gilds the edges of Street Songs, a collection bursting with unflagging energy.
  5. Now pushing 60, he's making some of the fiercest music of his career.
  6. 60
    At its best the record soars, but After The Meteor Showers' slight echo of Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight" left your scribe cold. [Jul 200, p.97]
  7. Alejandro Escovedo's Street Songs of Love lives up to the direct monosyllables of its title, then transcends them.
