    • 80 Critic Score

    • 80 Critic Score
    It feels like a declaration of purpose instead, made all the stronger for having passed through the crucible of Bachmann's doubts, through the armor breaks, and straight into-and from-the heart.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score

    • 80 Critic Score
    He still has plenty to communicate, his music not losing any creative potency over the years.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score

    • 80 Critic Score
    Peggy Sue's Acrobats is one of the most scattered, schizophrenic, soul questioning--and beautiful and best records of the year.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Not a weak track on the album.
    • 82 Metascore

    • 74 Metascore
