  2. Negative: 0 out of 15
  1. Hints of glam and punk inform the rootsy proceedings, giving these alternately gritty and lyrical songs a satisfying glow.
  2. In an ideal world, Street Songs of Love would be topping the charts. Sadly, it's not all that likely, but with the management magic of Jon Landau behind him and songs as good as those on Street Songs of Love, Alejandro Escovedo may finally be recognized as one of America's finest musical treasures.
  3. Street Songs of Love is the most raucous, rawest, and finest album Escovedo's yet released.
  4. An exhilarating, life-affirming blast of no-bullshit rock'n'roll, Street Songs of Love features Escovedo reteaming with famed David Bowie/T. Rex producer Tony Visconti, who also manned the boards for his arresting 2008 album, "Real Animal."
