    His most cohesive album in a decade. [16 Nov 2001, p.172]
  2. Uncut

    An American oddball, for sure, but one to treasure. [Jan 2002, p.146]
  3. Albums this unpretentious are increasingly rare, and I think that's what makes Her Mystery Not of High Heels and Eye Shadow so seductive.
  4. His songs are beautiful if simple ballads to whatever crosses his fancy.

    I love Jonathan Richman. He is the most humble artist ever and simply creates songs about whatever interests him. He even sings in multiple languages.

    I love Jonathan Richman, and not just because we share the same first name. His songs are so beautiful to me, and this is one of his best albums
