    I was really disappointed with this album especially after how great his previous work was. Nothing here is a patch on the magic of "Tristan" or "Wind In The Wires". It's shame. I know it's completely different in tone and production from his other albums, but I just didn't think it had that spark promised by his music history.

    caught his act warming up for a. winehouse at elect. factory in phila, pa last sat. night. boy did they stink the place up (i'd say "shit the bed", but that'd be gross). went hoping for something tolerable, but he's a really a very bad live act. to his credit, he seems to know it - mentioned amy's name six times.

    Worth investigating. [Mar 2007, p.115]
  2. Even at his laziest, Wolf sounds vastly more intelligent, committed and interesting than his supposed rivals, and "The Magic Position" is full of heart, warmth and beauty.
  3. It’s easy to overlook a few fizzles in an album stuffed with fireworks.
