  1. The voice asserts itself as the record sinks in, however, and not only does each song stand out, but the production variegates a sonic grandeur grounded in the rock verities.
  2. Thankfully, Malin has the heart -- and the tunes -- to pull off the tattered-troubadour trip.
  3. Rich in heart-rending beauty, tough-but-lovable gutter poetry, and plenty of genuine emotion.
  4. 100
    The Fine Art of Self Destruction is one of those amazing records that appear seemingly out of nowhere... that within a couple of plays sound already like something you've been listening to for years. [Album of the Month, Dec 2002, p.128]
