    Nick Lowe has made the album of his career, a dozen stories of love and loss so beautifully simple that you'll never get to the bottom of them. [Nov 2001, p.12]
  2. 90
    The Convincer gives Lowe yet another gold star with which to pad that resume. [#51, p.99]
  3. Lowe keeps turning out albums that sound like the best of his career.
  4. Old soul and country records hover like guardian angles over trim, unhurried tunes... [14 Sep 2001, p.94]
  5. The Convincer is a laid-back record that simply feels good.
  6. Even darker and more emotionally resonant than its impressive predecessors.
  7. The Convincer slots in smoothly behind 1998's Dig My Mood. [Oct 2001, p.126]

    Mi compadre, Nick Lowe, is pure genius. Every new page in his resume is strikingly new material, never stale. Nick gets better with age. Mi compadre, Nick Lowe, is pure genius.
