    Harding sounds invigorated and in great humor.

    Harding's adept at melding a simple slice of life with irresistible refrains, and that's what allows The Sound of His Own Voice to soar ever so sweetly.

    It's one of the most consistently satisfying albums of his career, and sounds more like the proper follow-up to the excellent Here Comes the Groom than anything he's made since.

    Harding's new album, The Sound of His Own Voice is yet another smorgasbord of flavorful musical dishes, but befitting his age--at 45 he's no longer the new anything--the best tracks are flavored with a pinch of nostalgia and a dash of regret.

    It's packed with clever songwriting, wry observations and occasional Leonard Cohen-esque dark foreboding. [Jan 2012, p.120]

    Harding here ups the comeback ante with a baker dozen of frothy, breezily melodic gems. [Dec 2011, p.84]
