    Nick Lowe makes another great, interesting record. I enjoy everything from the production to the stories in the songs. While certainly in the same space as The Convincer and At My Age, it's a welcome release in an era where crafting a record has become a lost art.

    One might say it's a composed, mature listen. [Oct. 2011, p. 108]

    Lowe's lyrical winks magnify his central truths. He's a cynical eye attached to a big heart.

    On much of The Old Magic, he's Richard Hawley unplugged.
