  • Summary: The eleventh album from Bill Callahan and (Smog) features new vocalist Sarabeth Tucek.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 13 out of 15
  2. Negative: 0 out of 15
  1. A strong early contender for Record of the Year.
  2. While the album retains some of the lo-fi insularity of his earlier four-track work, the full band backing makes Supper more of a living-room album than a back bedroom one.
  3. Supper is a fine accomplishment, a record of sad grace and folky simplicity that outdoes its predecessors and hints at a very worthwhile future.
  4. Callaghan has served up an album that, interestingly for his fractured vocals and streaming lyrics, is unusually coherent. [#230, p.61]
  5. Poignant and sincere, this is a Bill Callahan we could do with more of. [Jun 2003, p.104]
  6. It is (Smog)'s most colorful, vigorous, and alive album to date.
  7. 40
    The tentative pop entryism evident on albums like 1999's Knock Knock is largely absent here; instead we have his gruff baritone take us through an increasingly uninteresting outlook on love and life. [May 2003, p.108]
