    Albums like these always have to strike a careful balance between mimicking the original and killing the spirit of the original, but it's a balance that The Flip Is Another Honey is able to find quite comfortably.

    Doughty is savvy enough to make this disparate collection into a cohesive album, while putting his signature spin on each track.

    The album is at its best when Doughty allows himself to stray from his source material.

    The Flip isn't a flawless effort; "Boy + Angel" and a few others lack punch. But updates to tracks like Cheap Trick's "Southern Girls" and Thin Lizzy's "Running Back" shine.

    The quality zigzags, but Doughty maintains an agreeably impish spirit. [Mar 2013, p.70]

    There is something here for almost everyone making this a unique if inconsistently satisfying glance into the mind of one of pop's most fascinating and under-appreciated artists.
