    He concocts a series of dazzling interior epics with just a fingerpicked acoustic guitar and his echo-drenched voice. [Nov 2006, p.101]
  2. His hushed voice and intricate acoustic guitar work fill the space with reflective songs that sound little like anything he's done before.
  3. It is, thus far, his masterpiece, and as beautiful a pop record as can be made these days.
  4. Under The Skin... washes over you like a summer breeze.
  5. Under the Skin’s tenderly whispered ruminations... are gripping little creations, full of weird acoustic-guitar riffs and uncomfortably intimate vocals and open revelations about the anxiety he feels in trying to reassert his creative identity at this late date.
  6. 70
    Gorgeously understated. [Nov 2006, p.138]
  7. Unfortunately, all the intricately picked little guitar figures don't make his raspy yelping sound any less like a wet cat stuck under a couch.
