    [Co-producer Richard Hawley] takes Texas deep into their rock-soul roots without sacrificing their strengths or wearily re-treading past glories. [Jul 2013, p.110]

    Texas have gone back to basics, reconnecting with the solidly crafted simplicity of their earliest albums, Southside and Mother's Heaven. [Jul 2013, p.90]

    This isn’t the album to convert the cognoscenti to the Texas cause, but those willing to listen without prejudice will find in these warm, well-crafted songs a perfectly seductive soundtrack to their summer.

    It may not rock your world but, against all the odds, The Conversation presents a Texas which you can imagine falling a little bit in love with.
